Brothers Broke perform a bluesy interpretation of cover songs by a range of artists including Clapton, Dylan, JJ Cale, Credence Clearwater Revival, Dire Straits, Neil Young, The Band, Van Morrison and The Beatles.

With tight harmonies and a mellow, acoustic delivery, we play as a duo (guitar, bass, harmonica), trio (+keyboards) or quartet (+drums), depending on venues and desired ambiance.

Performances vary from hotel and bar venues in Belfast and Bushmills; the luxurious Chateau de Lartigolle, Toulouse, France; selected ambiant bars in Surrey; and a week of performances at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Brothers Broke are Members of The Alliance of Musicians & Performers.

Edinburgh Fringe

‘When Judas met John’ – Chapter One
Edinburgh Festival, Monday 13th–Saturday 18th August 2018,
Time: 19.40 (40mins)

Presenting a musical journey alternating between Bob Dylan and The Beatles, Irish duo Brothers Broke adapt and perform a bluesy fusion of songs by both artists. This casual and engaging 40-minute show features the like-minded lyrics of both artists, covering themes of love & jealousy; social attitudes; creativity; and revolution of the mind.

This show is charismatic in its offering of tight and subtle ‘sibling’ harmonies supported by solid acoustic blues guitar and harmonica, adding musical personality and character by way of interpretation of the songs.

Originally from Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland, twin brothers Hugh Adams and Tom Adams premier this show at the Fringe.
