Live Music: The Watchbirds

Sunday, February 3 / 11 am – 2 pm

On Sunday The Watchbirds will perform a show beginning at 11 am.

Imagine a soulful  woman singer backed by twangy acoustic guitar, artistic percussion, warm piano vibes, and fun vocal harmonies!  The Watchbirds are an original “garage folk” band from South-Eastern Wisconsin. They have a wide range of Influences (Janis Joplin, Violent Femmes, Kinks) hinted by the occasional covers they play. But, their eclectic mix is softened by their desire to stay folk.

I want to create music that feels familiar but brings listeners to new places.  It’s a delicate balance between personal experience and the universality of song and metaphor.  It’s music for the people as folk music should be.

- Dan Krill songwriter/guitarist

Established in 2015, the band has slowly turned their hobby into a professional outlet for creative expression. They have performed at farmer’s markets, coffee shops, bars, and festivals around the greater Milwaukee area and are very excited to make their debut in Madison, WI. Their first full-length album “Why Turbulence” is set for release on February 9th at all major music sites!
