The Small Glories at Key City Theatre
|October 5, 2019||20 - 14th Avenue N Cranbrook, BC V1C 6H4|
Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories could almost make you believe in fate.
They released their new album, Assiniboine & The Red on June 28 on Red House Records. The album title references the junction of two rivers, the Assiniboine (pronounced ‘uh-sin-uh-boin’) and the Red, in the duo’s hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and celebrates the happenstance meeting of members Cara Luft, an original member of the Wailin’ Jennys, and multi-instrumentalist JD Edwards.
The duo has unveiled the first single from the album, “Oh My Love”.
“It’s our happiest sounding broken-hearted love song!” Luft says of the single. “It’s a theme we are all familiar with, when we give our heart over to another and the feeling is either not reciprocal, or the timing is off, or we misread the signs.”
