Description

Saturday evening co-headlined concert features two dynamic, acclaimed bands.

The Small Glories, a roots powerhouse duo, hails all the way from Winnipeg, CANADA and consist of Cara Luft & JD Edwards. These two veteran singer/songwriters built an international buzz around their tight harmonies, emotional authenticity, explosive live performances and equally well-matched guitar prowess. Many know Cara as a founding member of country/folk sweethearts The Wailin’ Jennys. Their 2016 debut album “Wondrous Traveler” was nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards and found its way onto many critic’s Top 10 lists across North America and Europe. www.youtube.com/watch?v=DghNgN6lJSg

Sugar and the Mint, a vibrant, young, upcoming band (ranging in ages from 18-22), hails from Prescott, AZ and is bringing new energy to traditional Americana music. In 2017, the band took first place in the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest. They have shared the bill with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Emmylou Harris, Punch Brothers, Jerry Douglas, the Sam Bush Band and more. Since their lucky break in 2017, the band has been touring extensively and recording. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ej_NMXOhLZY&list=PLWfSe2qMjyzFCtaPZpBSLVqqGpt4LepE0&index=13.
