The Small Glories, a duo who appeared at Tønder Festival in 2017, are gaining more and more traction on the international music scene. The Small Glories are Cara Luft, song and banjo, and JD Edwards, song and guitar, and they come from Winnipeg. Each was a star in their own right on the Canadian folk and roots scene before they joined up in 2016. JD Edwards has seen service in the JD Edwards Band, and Cara Luft was a member of The Wailin’ Jennys until 2005. In The Small Glories, two very different artists have joined forces, and they deliver unforgettable songs in delightful harmony. On their debut album Wondrous Traveler from 2016, the differences are set aside to reveal versatility in handling folk and bluegrass ballads and even a rocking version of Woody Guthrie and Billy Bragg’s Way over Yonder in the Minor Key. Their latest album is Assiniboine & The Red from 2019. “Luft and Edwards sound so at ease with each other that they may soon join duos like Mandolin Orange and Shovels & Rope at the peak of americana,” writes Paste Magazine about The Small Glories. Their only Danish festival concert in 2022.
