Toronto-based duo Harrow Fair are aka Miranda Mulholland and Andrew Penner and they’ve just announced their return to the UK this autumn including shows in Milton Keynes, Sheffield, Bristol and London’s Green Note on Wednesday 8th November (full dates below). We described their most recent record in rather glowing terms: “It’s the balance of crunching guitar and unsettling percussion coupled with edgy fiddletunes that forms the musical palette for Call to Arms…. As debut’s go this is darn near to perfect.” And you can’t get better than that (apart from actually being perfect). And while you peruse the list of dates, why not listen to their cover below of Memphis Minnie Led Zepplin covered track When The Levee Breaks.
