The Small Glories

All Ages
Winner of 'Artist of the Year' at the 2019 International Folk Music Awards, The Small Glories return to Winnipeg on Saturday, April 25th.

Fresh off winning Artist of the Year at the International Folk Music Awards as well as a nomination at the upcoming 2020 Juno Awards, The Small Glories are coming back home for a show at the West End Cultural Centre. The award-winning duo will be on our stage on April 25th in support of their wildly successful sophomore album ‘Assiniboine & The Red’.

The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. Brought together for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories could almost make you believe in fate. They have a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as though they are right there on stage with the band. Their material is welcoming in terms of subject, folk-pop melody and instrumentation – songs of love, loss, and environment, delivered with soaring, interwoven vocals on various combinations of stomping clawhammer banjo, guitar and harmonica.

Luft and Edwards take the musical synergy honed from hundreds of shows together, and expand it into a new soundscape that reinforces the magic of their innate chemistry – a chemistry labeled the ‘Lennon-McCartney syndrome,’ by Americana UK, writing, “some things just work together… to witness a performance by the Small Glories is a rare opportunity to experience that indefinable quality that creates perfection.”
