Mama's Broke

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Announcing the first UK tour of compelling and exciting new folk duo Mama’s Broke. Highly influenced by their Canadian roots, Lisa and Amy are based out of nowhere and everywhere.

Delivering powerful performances with heart and raw energy, 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 in their shows. 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; already with two European, and several Canadian and U.S. tours under their belts. 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 and theatres in Brooklyn.
