Hot Mustard started as a NH Arts Grant apprenticeship between Bruce Stockwell and Bill Jubett.
Bruce & Bill put together a number of double-banjo arrangements over the course of the grant, and decided to take their show on the road. Adding to the band are their sweethearts and long-time musical companions, April Jubett on guitar & vocals and Kelly Stockwell on double bass.
Bruce has been playing and teaching banjo for years in Putney, VT, where he is often overheard telling other musicians to "put the mustard to it" meaning to play the next tune with extra spice. Bill & April have been singing those high, lonesome harmonies together in a few local bluegrass bands and around the house for 5 years now. Bill plays fiddle as well as banjo. Kelly lugs her bass all over New England and can be found thumping away at most great jams at all picking parties and festivals and now as the heartbeat of Hot Mustard.
