VIDEO: Mustard’s Retreat records song for Flint and the #FlintWaterCrisis – “Take the Children and Run”


Ann Arbor-based Mustard’s Retreat is a folk duo that has been making amazing music for over 40 years. They recently recorded a cover of Don Lange’s song Take the Children and Run that they “folk processed” to make it applicable to the catastrophe in Flint. Here’s what they had to say about the song on their website:

Most of you know of our abiding love and connection with Flint MI. This song and video are among the things we are doing to try and help: maybe if enough people share it will get the politicians to do their jobs. Thank you.

It’s a really terrific song and the video that goes with it takes it to the next level:

The song is available for a free download on their site. Please share it widely.

We are working on having Mustard’s Retreat play this song and some others at our upcoming 2016 Eclectablog fundraiser party. Stay tuned for details on that.
