Michigan Emmy award-winning songwriter Kitty Donohoe was born into a large, creative family outside of Detroit and has been ‘making up’ songs for as long as she can remember. Describing her music as ‘folky, bluesy, Irishy, American, Canadianish’, she draws from her roots to create music that is uniquely her own ~ music that’s‘haunting, melodic and literate’ ~ All Music Guide. With a love of language, an innate sense of melody, and the soul of a storyteller, she backs herself on piano, guitar and cittern with equal finesse, but she sees these skills as mostly providing the foundation for the music she writes, both songs and instrumentals. ‘Kitty creates a glorious sound’ ~ Sing Out. Kitty’s latest CD, ‘The Irishman’s Daughter’, combines her original pieces with some traditional music and is getting great reviews. ‘Kitty is making a name for herself in Irish America and you can see why from the high quality of the work here.‘ Irish Music Magazine. Singing her songs with a ‘soaring voice’ (Victory Music Review) she often performs solo, but can ramp it up when joined by Canadian Len Wallace on accordion, Luke Panning on fiddle, or ‘uber multi-instrumentalist’ David Mosher on pretty much everything else. In 2002 Kitty was awarded an Emmy for her 9/11 song ‘There Are No Words’, which led to it’s use in a film and an appearance at the Pentagon for the dedication of the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial.
oyful, uplifting, intelligent, thought-provoking, insightful, original and timeless, Mustards Retreat is Libby Glover, Michael Hough and David Tamulevich. The trio met in 1975, performing together off and on throughout the late 70’s until a permanent move left Hough & Tamulevich on their own. Success and praise continued to follow the duo for the next 40 years, during which time they released a series of acclaimed recordings, traveled more than a million miles and performed more than 6,000 shows. Libby moved back to Michigan in 2014, and found the old chemistry was still there, deepened by the years of performing, stagecraft, songs, and the abiding friendship they all shared.
