Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies.
Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at
Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories is
a partnership that could almost make you believe in fate.
Straight out of the gate these two veteran singer/songwriters built an
international buzz around their tight harmonies, emotional authenticity, explosive live performances and equally well-matched guitar prowess.
Luft packs a mean banjo as well.
Many know Cara as a founding member of country/folk sweethearts The
Wailin’ Jennys. In this new project, it’s clear that JD just might be her musical soul mate.
The Winnipeg Free Press asks, “can two singer-songwriters be better
than one? Yes, emphatically, yes, if the two in question are Cara Luft and JD Edwards… It’s our loss they didn’t [join forces] sooner… It’s magic.”
Fairport Convention drummer Dave Mattacks captures them perfectly:
“The Small Glories are like The Civil Wars but less pretentious, with better songs and more guts.”
