The Small Glories
Named by Folk Alliance International as 2019 Artist of the Year, roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft (The Wailin' Jennys ) & JD Edwards — a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian prairies.

He's also an impressive songwriter, with unique perspectives (both lyrically and musically) and ingenious arrangements. Read more...
