CANADIAN roots powerhouse The Small Glories are making a debut visit to north Wales

Duo Cara Luft & JD Edwards are described as a musical 'tour-de-force'and hail from the Canadian Prairies.

The pair came together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s West End Cultural Centre.

Press reviews rave about their magical and stunning harmonies, and their perfectly matched voices and suggest that fate intended them to find each other.

According to promoters they have a stage banter that strikes a unique balance between slapstick and sermon!

It has been said that the veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as though they are right there on the stage with the band.

Apparently, it’s not uncommon for listeners to find themselves laughing, dancing, crying, or just caught up in a good old fashioned sing-along.

The duo's material entails folk-pop melody and instrumentation, with lots of songs of love, loss, and the 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, style duplicates and reinforceseach others’ many strengths, yet allows their distinct personalities to shine through.

The resulting live show is said to be as "heartwarming as it is hilarious, as finger-picking proficient as it is relatable, and as Canadian as, well…" It’s very Canadian.

The pair have won over audiences from Nashville to the Australian outback.

On Sunday, December 1, they will be performing at the Caban in Brynrefail. Doors open 7,30pm.

Tickets are available from Caban, Palas Print in Caernarfon (01286 674631) and Mudshark Records in Bangor.
