Michelle Canning Introduces Hot Mustard on the Main Stage
At many festivals we attend, I like to identify a band that particularly surprised me for its quality and attractiveness. Often it turns out to be an un-heralded local or regional band I'd never heard before. In this case I must confess that Bruce Stockwell has been my banjo teacher, and I've written about his performances, primarily with his brothers, before. Hot Mustard is a bluegrass band he, Kelly, and Ben Jubett have put together that's been performing in Vermont and New Hampshire for a few months. With April Hobart bringing a fine bluegrass voice to the mix, and luthier Adam Buchwald on mandolin, Hot Mustard presents a program of older seldom heard songs, very good instrumentals, and new material together to create a very good blend. Regional promoters should seek this band out.
