Mama’s Broke return to UK

We’re delighted that the brilliant Mama’s Broke return to these shores next Spring (May 22 -Jun 8) with their dark, fiery folk-without-borders sound.

With their close harmony duets, commanding vocals, and poignant contemplations on cycles of life, they combine tinges of Americana with the ghosts of Eastern European fiddle tunes and ancient a cappella ballad singing, melding into an unusually accessible dark-folk sound on fiddle, banjo, mandolin and guitar.

For a group defined by constant touring, it’s not surprising that Lisa Maria and Amy Lou Keeler met on the road. Both coming out of travelling communities that are focused on music and protest, the two owe the way in which they move through the world to the integrated and self-sustaining nature of DIY culture and activism. 

Touring 22 May – 8 June 2025
