Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a dynamic new duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. Luft’s folkie yin proves a perfect match for Edwards’ rocker yang thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre.
Luft is a Juno award winner, co-founder of folk trio The Wailin’ Jennys, and a touring road warrior. She has earned a solid reputation as an exciting live performer, accomplished guitarist, clawhammer banjo player and insightfully honest songwriter. She’s played at Seven before in 2013 as part of the ABC of Canada trio – and gave us a great show.
Edwards has a voice that defies categorization, one that easily ranges from gentle and melodic to fierce and powerful. These two veteran singer/songwriters have teamed up and are already building a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity and visceral performances.
Straight out of the gate these two veteran singer/songwriters built a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity, visceral live performances and equally well-matched guitar prowess that doesn’t come around often. Luft packs a mean banjo as well.
Their 2016 debut album “Wondrous Traveler” is steeped in classic song structure, delivering instantly appealing melodic Americana with first-rate playing. The album found its way onto many critic’s Top 10 lists across North America and Europe.
The Small Glories are the ultimate: two amazing solo performers who somehow manage to melt into one entity, creating incredible harmonies.
