The Small Glories
Americana's newest triumph

Can two singer-songwriters be better than one? Yes, if those two are Cara Luft and JD Edwards of The Small Glories, a folk-roots powerhouse duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. Thrown together by accident for a show in Winnipeg, this musical tour-de-force could almost make you believe in fate. “Luft is a Wailin’ Jennys alum whose work on the clawhammer banjo is to die for, while Edwards’ guitar and vocal harmonies deepen and enrich the duo’s sound.”-NPR Music.
However, a Small Glories performance is really about what happens in-between songs. With stage banter that’s somewhere between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters make time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as if they’re right on stage. Their innate chemistry – labeled the “Lennon-McCartney syndrome” by Americana UK, results in a live show that’s as heartwarming as it is hilarious, as finger-picking proficient as it is relatable, and as Canadian as, well…it’s very Canadian.
Brace yourself: The Small Glories put on a show you really won’t want to end.
