THE SMALL Glories are a musical union between Canadian folk/roots artists Cara Luft and JD Edwards, a union Greil Marcus said, "finds the darkening chord change the best bluegrass—from the Stanley Brothers to Be Good Tanyas—has always hidden in the sweet slide of the rhythm".
The Small Glories play Monroe’s on Sunday June 10 Their abilities as strong lead and harmony singers, their shared history of growing up singing in musical families, and their songwriting skills have won them much critical acclaim, with No Depression declaring their songs "offer an instant allure, giving reason to listen again and again, simply because they're well worth reliving".
Both are steeped in roots, Americana, folk, and country music, with a side order of rock. Cara Luft is a Juno award winner and a co-founder of folk trio The Wailin’ Jennys. As well as The Small Glories, JD Edwards is also a leader of the six-piece JD Edwards Band and the collective Dry Bones.
