Mama's Broke

FRIDAY 2ND AUGUST 2019

19.00 - 23.00

Mama’s Broke is a powerful folk duo that deliver a compelling performance with
heart and raw energy. Although highly influenced by their Canadian roots, Lisa and
Amy are based out of nowhere and everywhere.
Their two strong voices blend to create haunting harmonies, while they artfully
juggle fiddle, banjo, guitar and mandolin, and incorporate traditional dance and
foot percussion into their performance. Their original – and often dark –
compositions push the boundaries of tradition and the constraints of genre.
Drawing from old-time, Quebecois, blues, punk, Celtic, Balkan and doom metal,
they create a soundscape that is both familiar and new.
Since forming the band in 2014, Mama’s Broke has been gaining momentum fast;
having already completed two European, and several Canadian and U.S. tours. They
have performed in a wide range of venues, from circus shows in New Orleans, to
pirate ships in Amsterdam, to concert halls in Ireland, to theatres in Brooklyn. In
this way, they stay true to the transient nature of folklore, as they travel the world
sharing and collecting song.
“Multi-instrumentalists Amy Lou and Lisa Maria are masterful songwriters who
sing their lyrics as incantations …twin prophets who bend our ear effortlessly
and beckon us ever forward.” — Kaia Kater
“... a contemporary offering that's as dark as December.” — Penguin Eggs
