Album: Call to Arms
Release date: October 21, 2016
Harrow Fair, are a folky duo based in Toronto, ON. This is their debut full length album. Miranda Mulholland and Andrew Penner, make some really beautiful music together. This album has some great duets with rushing melodies, and great fiddle filled tracks to keep your folk vault going.
The first track “Hangnail”, sounds a bit more alternative with a touch of folk. It was a great opening to a trail of awesome songs. Miranda’s voice makes me think of a singer by the name of Loreena Mckennitt in the track “How Cold”, which is more like a ballad. Their voices mesh wonderfully together to create some amazing east coast almost celtic sounding music.
They have been touring around most of the summer, but it looks like they have a couple more shows coming up around the GTA if you wanted to catch them live.
I wear many hats, such as working full time as an ophthalmic assistant, Birth Doula, selling Younique- and now I also have taken up writing with Canadian Beats. I have always enjoyed writing, and I am so excited to be doing it again. We all need outlets and this for me is something that I love to do. Music has always been a big part of my life, and attending concerts is one of my favorite things to do. The energy that I get from seeing a band play live is like no other, I think it’s almost an addiction for me!
I tend to lean towards rock, alternative, indie, folk and acoustic music- but I am also open to listening to something new too! Maybe I’ll see you around at a concert!
