The Resonant Rogues, Mamma’s Marmalade

The Resonant Rogues, Mamma’s Marmalade
The Resonant Rogues - Asheville, North Carolina’s genre hopping songsters, The Resonant Rogues, have been winning over audiences worldwide with their signature blend of string band music since 2013. Influenced by traditions from Appalachia, New Orleans, France, the Balkans, and beyond, the original songs speak to the heart with poetic lyrics, and appeal to the ears with stellar musicianship and arrangement.

“American folk music has always had a populist perspective, a vision of music made by the people, for the people. Asheville, North Carolina roots band The Resonant Rogues know this well, for they’ve traveled the byways and highways of America, even crossed the water to Europe and the Mediterranean with instruments and songs in tow. Anchored by the songwriting duo Sparrow and Keith Smith, the Rogues have shared songs with train-hoppers in New Orleans, busked on the streets of Budapest, learned Turkish Romani dance in Istanbul, and marched in protest in the hills of Appalachia. Throughout, the stories they’ve heard and the people they’ve met have fueled their music, which abounds with influences like Eastern European Romani brass bands, New Orleans street jazz, old-time stringbands, Woody Guthrie anti-fascist folk, French jazz Manouche, and Middle Eastern rhythms. It’s not easy to pull off such a bold combination of genres, but The Resonant Rogues learned this music in person from the people who created it, so they have a tie to each tradition and a working knowledge of what this music means to the ordinary people that make this music every day. It’s a tintype view on the modern world,a cracked image that reflects the past through a prism of the future. –Hearth Music

Mamma’s Marmalade - With a fresh take on traditional American music, Northampton, MA-based newgrass band Mamma’s Marmalade transforms the conventional bluegrass experience into a raucous barnyard party that refuses to let you sit. Since their formation in 2014, the five piece string band has been fusing diverse musical backgrounds into a sound that bursts at the seams with energy, exuding a pure joy for creating music. Mamma’s honest lyrics and warm, acoustic tones invite listeners back to a time when wooden instruments and sweet vocal harmonies captivated the hearts of America. Experimenting with intricate instrumentals and lively covers, their music brings the genre to new and unexpected places.
