“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.”


Mama’s Broke, based out of New Orleans and Halifax, craft a sound that artfully weaves old-time, Quebecois, blues, punk, Celtic, Balkan and doom metal into a hypnotic and energizing tapestry of original music.  The connection between Amy Lou Keeler and Lisa Maria draws the listener in as they effortlessly move through dark, lonesome, and intricate acapella songs to fiery, ripping fiddle/banjo tunes accompanied by foot percussion and driving guitar rhythms.  Their debut album Count the Wicked won them a Canadian Folk Music Award in 2017 for ‘Ensemble of the Year’ as well as a nomination for ECMA ‘Rising Star Award.’ Their sophomore album Narrow Line, released in 2022 on Free Dirt Records, was featured in The Bluegrass Situation, Hollar Country, No Depression, Folk Radio UK’s “top ten of the year” as well as being placed on NPR’s taste maker and Tiny Desk host Bob Boilen's “What I’m Listening To Right Now” Spotify playlist.  Narrow Line is currently in the running for 2023 Canadian Folk Music Award ‘vocal group of the year’ and has also been nominated for a Juno award (Best Traditional Roots Album of The Year).



"If you are the kind of music listener that likes to connect with your music and understand the importance of textured sound, then it is time for you to find these guys.”  


Folk-Soul-Blues artist Marty O’Reilly embodies some rare form of musical catharsis that is seldom accessed and seldom witnessed on-stage in the performing arts world. So true and so honest is the expression of Marty. Raw, passionate, smokey vocals captain the ship of a live performance teeming with ecstatic heights, driving grooves and delicate ballads all delivered in uncompromised, penetrating emotion. There are songs about cambium, songs about cannabilism, political disagreement, a three-legged dog, a canary in a coal mine, and mass suicide. There are also songs about love and deep caring, songs about family, and snapshots of lush landscapes – portrayed lush and vivid in beautiful detail. Marty often exits the stage out of breath and dripping in his own sweat, leaving his audience in a rich fulness of heartwarming splendor.
