Mama's Broke

Sat Jul 8, 2017

Mama's BrokeA unique folk duo that interweaves age-old music form and traditions with original modern compositions. They tell a story both familiar and new.

As they prepare for the release of their debut full length album, and this summer's Album Launch tour, Mama's Broke have been taking time away from the road, which has been the constant in this hard working band's life since the beginning.

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 an array of instruments including fiddle, banjo, guitar and mandolin; and incorporate traditional dance and foot percussion as part of their performance. Their original... and often dark... compositions push the boundaries of tradition and the constraints of genre. Drawing from many styles such as old-time, quebecois, blues, punk, celtic, balkan, and doom metal, they create a soundscape that is both familiar and new.
