Mama's Broke With Lisa Maria & Amy Lou: SpringWorks: indie theatre & arts festival
Event Date: Saturday Oct. 21st, 2017
Event Time: 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm
Host: Hermione Presents ~ SpringWorks: indie theatre & arts festival
Mama’s Broke is a powerful folk duo that deliver a compelling performance with heart and raw energy. 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, Québécois , blues, Celtic, Balkan and doom metal, they create a soundscape that is both familiar and new. Although highly influenced by their Canadian roots, Lisa and Amy are based out of nowhere and everywhere.
Since forming the band in early 2014, Mama’s Broke has been gaining momentum fast ; having already completed two European tours, and two North American tours, as well as releasing an EP and a full length album. In their travels, they have performed in a wide range of venues; from circus shows in New Orleans, to pirate ships in Amsterdam, 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. The driving force behind this band is – and has always been – the commitment to challenge borders between people, places and traditions, while encouraging freedom of expression and community through music.
