JPR Live Session: Mama's Broke

Ways To Subscribe

Mama's Broke — Amy Lou Keeler and Lisa Maria— a duo from Nova Scotia, joined us to talk about their new release, Narrow Line and play a few songs.

Amy Lou Keeler and Lisa Maria drove from Montreal to Nova Scotia in 2014. They spent the time discussing music, and by the time they arrived, the idea for Mama's Broke was born.

They just released their second full length album Narrow Line, a follow up to the 2017 release Count the Wicked. The duo perform folk music but draw influence from their pasts playing bluegrass, doom metal and punk. Their multi-cultural approach to folk music has been described as "from everywhere and nowhere" and "music without borders."

Mama's Broke talked with us and performed in the Steve Nelson performance studio on the campus of Southern Oregon University.

More information about Mama's Broke is available at their website.

Dave Jackson curates the music on JPR's Rhythm and News Service, manages music staff and hosts Open Air, JPR's hand-picked house blend of music, JPR Live Sessions and Open Air Amplified. The exploration of music has been one of his lifelong passions.
