“Some things just work together: the Lennon and McCartney syndrome – and to witness a performance by The Small Glories is a rare opportunity to experience that indefinable quality that creates perfection...” - David Allen, Americana UK

Returning to Canmore after performances at the Canmore Folk Music Festival, roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. 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, one of the original members of folk trio The Wailin’ Jennys, and Edwards duplicate and reinforce each others’ many strengths and yet allow their distinct personalities to shine through, resulting in a live show that is as heartwarming as it is hilarious, as finger-picking proficient as it is relatable, and as Canadian as, well… it’s very Canadian. But that hasn’t stopped ‘em from winning over audiences
from Nashville to the Australian outback. Their highly anticipated sophomore album “Assiniboine & The Red” was released on Red House Records, garnering 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a JUNO Award nomination, Critics’ Choice for ‘Album of the Year’ in Penguin Eggs Magazine, the #1 Folk/Roots album on the national earshot! radio charts, and saw the duo win “Artist of the Year” at the International Folk Awards in New Orleans.

“Can two singer-songwriters be better than one? Yes, emphatically, yes, if the two in question are Cara Luft and JD Edwards, playing and singing together as The Small Glories. It’s our loss they didn’t [join forces] sooner because Edwards and Luft are a folk-roots powerhouse... It’s magic. ★★★★” - Winnipeg Free Press

Local Opening Act

Mari Rosehill

Indie/Folk artist Mari Rosehill often reflects on life’s subtleties and expresses it best through song. Ranging from soft, operatic highs, to full low tones, her introspective styled lyrics invite you to take a look into how she thinks. The Canmore-born and raised artist really only started out in the music scene once she moved back at 20-years-old. She has frequented open mics and has hosted a few, having a supportive arts community to take her under its wing. Most recently, Mari was awarded the Lamphouse Endowment for the Arts: Emerging Artist Bursary.
