"Mal-O-Dua" or mal aux doigts in French means "My fingers hurt!"

Hot Hawaiian and French Guitar Sorcery!

“Drawing from French swing, Hawaiian slack key, Parisian waltz and other styles, Mal-O-Dua's sound is one of the most eclectic in town." - Isthmus Magazine “Isthmus Picks”

"...a sound you won’t hear anywhere else this summer. Expect a high-energy acoustic show, peppering in historical anecdotes about the music they present to give it context." - Door County Pulse

"While there's plenty of history and skill in the music, Mal-O-Dua's playful, loose style travels well..." - Scott Gordon for Tone Madison
