Harrow Fair is Miranda Mulholland and Andrew Penner. On May 6, the dynamic guitar/fiddle duo will release their debut 7" single – coupling I Will Be Your Man with a cover of Hank Williams’ I Told A Lie To My Heart – on Roaring Girl Records/Fontana North. Harrow Fair has a few dates coming up later in April, with more to be announced soon.
Now seasoned veterans of the Toronto music scene, Miranda Mulholland (Great Lake Swimmers, Belle Starr) and Andrew Penner (Sunparlour Players) started writing music together while working in the Soulpepper Theatre Company over the last few years. Since then, they have built a musical framework that allows both of them the freedom to use their considerable strengths as both singers and players while collaborating on compelling new compositions enhanced by rootsy guitar and fiddle interplay.
Harrow Fair seems like the perfect platform to showcase Mulholland's exceptional talent as a vocal stylist which has thus far been overshadowed by her fearsome fiddling skills. Have a listen to Harrow Fair's inventive reworking of I Told A Lie To My Heart below.
