Breaking Blue is a folk band based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They write original music and play traditional folk songs with flute rather than the more traditional fiddle. The flute gives the band a celtic sound, while claw hammer banjo lends itself to Old-Time Traditional American Folk Music. The band is fronted by two female vocalists both equally capable of leading the band and have become well known locally for their easy, laid back, and amusing approach to live performances. Percussion and bass add another dimension to the group that will have to tapping your toes and nodding your head to the steady rhythm of even the most beautiful ballad.
Breaking Blue has been performing together since 2009. They have released 2 studio albums and 1 live album. Visit their discography page to listen to and purchase their music. They have been nominated for 5 New Mexico Music Awards and have been grateful to receive two awards for Best Americana Song and Best Folk Song. In addition to the New Mexico Music Awards, the band has also been winners of the Santa Fe Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival Old Time Band Competition and winner of the Albuquerque Folk Festival Band Contest. They are a family friendly band and love being part of events that support local community, church, and city activities that the whole family can enjoy.
