Powerful folk duo Mama’s Broke convey a raw, harmonic synergy with their music.
Formed by multi-instrumentalists Amy Lou and Lisa Maria, their compositions draw on their Canadian roots whilst channelling a nomadic transience.
Via vocal harmonies and employing fiddle, banjo, mandolin and guitar, Mama’s Broke evoke sound-worlds that are strikingly dark and haunting.
Given the rich tapestry of their sound, it makes sense that the influences are wide-ranging, encompassing punk, blues, Balkan and doom-metal alongside Quebecois and Celtic traditions.
Since forming in 2014 they’ve toured across Europe, Canada and the U.S., sharing their distinct folkloric storytelling with captive audiences.

“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”
Fritillaries are a folk/Americana pop duo made up of Hannah Pawson (vocals, guitar, banjo, harmonium) and Gabriel Wynne (guitar, mandolin). Musically, they incorporate elements of the English folk tradition, Appalachian string band and Americana. Hannah writes from a queer female perspective, with songs about refugee and human rights issues from her background as a social worker and activist.
