Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival and the Earlville Opera House partner to present Mustard’s Retreat live streaming from Montreal on Friday, December 4, 7pm. This is a free access concert and give-what-you-like event with a portion of proceeds going to support the dual missions of Colorscape and the Opera House. A link for donations into a tip jar will be posted during the show. 

Mustard’s Retreat has been delighting local audiences through their performances at Colorscape since 2003, often both on the main stage and the children’s stage as recent as 2018, and almost half a dozen times in between! They’ve always been a favorite and break the wall between the audience and performer while creating a warmness and familiarity now brought right into your living room. 

For over 40 years Mustard’s Retreat has been telling stories. They’re witty, insightful, fun, and profound, as well as accomplished songwriters and musician (guitars, dulcimer, electric bass, mandolin, harmonica, pennywhistle). They will make you laugh with tales of stupid frogs, wandering cadavers, haunted bridges and techo-nerds, memories of small towns and high school, first loves and last…and places we’ve been or maybe just dreamed of.

Viewers can access the show at:
