Our first show of the year was with our good friends at the Lake County Folk Club when we opened for Barb Silverman and Colby Maddox, both of whom double as teachers at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago.

We returned to The Coffeehouse at Chestnut and Pine a couple of weeks later. It remains our favorite Wisconsin place, which is why we keep going back there.  We will be there again in July.  

Some bits of news we received early this year: 

First, our good friend Nick Noble of the Folk Rival picked our "Struggles and Love" album as one of the best CDs of 2017.  We were in some rarified company there.

Scott Engstrom, President of the Lake County Folk Club, wrote this glowing review of our act:

                        "Musical duo and married singer/songwriters, Wattle & Daub (Tim and Susan Mocarski) will get the evening burning with their raw yet melodious brand of roadhouse-folk and outlaw love songs.  This creative couple comes armed with a brace of bold, inventive, sometimes highly personal originals and choice covers that are equal part spirited and gritty, poignant and tender."


We are grateful for Nick's selection and for Scott's kind words.  We not too sure what he meant by outlaw love songs, but Susan is working on one to perform at our next show in Port Washington at the Smith Brothers Coffeehouse.   All songs have to start somewhere.

We'll be having some shows in Milwaukee and are always looking for places to place.  Keep up with our calendar here or check out our Facebook for upcoming events.
