Warp and Weft is a progressive folk album of songs about the Lancashire Cotton Famine.  It features poems from the time collected by University of Exeter, as well as original songs by the band.

Cath Rogan says “As soon as we heard about the poems we wanted to do something about the Cotton Famine, it’s a piece of working class history which doesn’t get taught in schools and is largely forgotten.”

@CottonFaminePoetry tweeted that they were "Very happy that @Motheroforder1 are working to let people hear these century-and-a-half-old words from Lancashire."

Mother of Order are a progressive, political folk duo who play songs with big choruses so that people can sing along.  Their debut single, 'Build the Barn' is out now on all major streaming platforms.  The album,  'Warp and Weft', will be out on Feb 29th as a CD and streaming release.
