Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a dynamic duo planted on the Canadian Prairies.  A self-professed “study in contrasts,” Luft’s folkie yin proves a perfect match for Edwards’ rocker yang.  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 a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity, visceral live performances and equally well-matched guitar prowess that doesn’t come around often. Luft packs a mean banjo as well.  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.”Their 2016 debut album “Wondrous Traveler” is steeped in classic song structure, delivering instantly appealing melodic Americana with first-rate playing. The album found its way onto many critic’s Top 10 lists across North America and Europe, and The Small Glories are finding themselves on stages from Vancouver to London and beyond. Together, Luft and Edwards are a musical tour de force, a case of 1 + 1 = 3.

Luft and Edwards are two traveling souls that may have taken a while to finally find each other, but it’s damn lucky for us their paths crossed.” 


The Small Glories are the ultimate: two amazing solo performers who somehow manage to melt into one entity, creating incredible harmonies that still raise the hairs on the back of my neck as I write.” 


“It can’t be done, so don’t even try to turn away from the affecting insistence of Canada’s Luft who sings like an angel named Joni or Alanis…”


“Luft is the perfect blend of lightness and gutsy rock chick.”


“I am SO lucky to know [JD Edwards]… he’s one for the books – a great talent, a lovely guy, and he has a killer band.  If he’s not booked for your club, coffeehouse, concert series or festival, just GET ON IT!!”

JAMES KEELAGHAN, AD, Summerfolk Festival

“If you want a band of perfect gentlemen who will rock your weekend look no further than the JD Edwards band. Fantastic songwriting, tons of energy, they are like The Band for the 21st century!”

JOHN SCOLES, Owner, Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club

“The most soulful yet house-rockin’ band in town, hands down!…Better get here early, they always pack the joint.”

RICHARD NEUFELD, GM, Blue Sky Opportunities
