Mama’s Broke in ConcertElder Apothecary
Sunday April 9th at 7:30 pm
Mama's Broke is a powerful 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, balkand and doom metal, they create a soundscape that is both familiar and new.
“Their songs are weather beaten by dark realities and grey areas. The human condition…It’s brutally honest and evocative, managing to feel otherworldly, albeit with unvarnished truths.”— fROOTS (UK)
“When Keeler and Maria come together and sing, it’s magic, and they reaffirm how nourishing music can be”— No Depression
“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
“Mama’s Broke may seem traditional, but their tales of modern life have too much bite to be nostalgic; they are new and unique voices in modern, rootsy Americana that must be heard.” - FOLK RADIO UK
