Mama's Broke Release Party with Tim Eriksen & Eric Stephen Martin

About this event

As part of their Narrow Line release tour, Mama's Broke will be making a stop in Dartmouth , and they will be joined by Tim Eriksen and Eric Stephen Martin.

Formed by multi-instrumentalists Amy Lou and Lisa Maria, the compositions of Mama's Broke 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.

Tim Eriksen is acclaimed for transforming American tradition with his startling interpretations of old ballads, love songs, shape-note gospel and dance tunes from New England and Southern Appalachia. He combines hair-raising vocals with inventive accompaniment on banjo, fiddle, guitar and bajo sexto - a twelve string Mexican acoustic bass - creating a distinctive hardcore Americana sound.

Eric Stephen Martin's meandering, stream-of-consciousness lyricism wades through the waters of heartbreak, redemption, and hope, being shamelessly self-reflective and heavily influenced by the beat poetry of Jack Kerouac and 90's Bob Dylan. Dreamlike trades the humour and irony of modern indie art for a more serious and heartfelt approach.
