We begin the week with ‘Seat at the Table’ from Harrow Fair, taken from the duo’s brand new album, ‘Sins We Made’. The voices of Miranda Mulholland and Andrew Penner blend and complement one another beautifully. They say: “We felt that, as artists, we had a responsibility to comment on the world we live in and the world we want to create. ‘Seat at the Table’ became a thesis statement for us.
The song was inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 1800s, which was a response to the upheaval and mechanisation of the industrial revolution. It was a return to small-batch, artistry, care, and a more fulfilling way of life. We had no way of knowing that this message would become not only more relevant but also more imperative today than ever before.” The video shows the pair host a meal for local townspeople, held as a fundraiser for Gravenhurst Against Poverty. It symbolises the song’s message about inclusion and caring for the vulnerable in society. Enjoy.
