Join us for our first concert of the 2023 season with roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories.

The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these 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. On record, Luft and Edwards take the musical synergy honed from hundreds of shows together, and expand it into a new soundscape amplified by pounding drums and other textural embellishments which only reinforce the magic of their innate chemistry — a chemistry labeled the “Lennon-McCartney syndrome,” by Americana UK, writing, “Some things just work together... to witness a performance by The Small Glories is a rare opportunity to experience that indefinable quality that creates perfection.”

Luft and Edwards duplicate and reinforce each others’ many strengths and yet allow their distinct personalities to shine through, resulting in a live show that is as heartwarming as it is hilarious, as finger-picking proficient as it is relatable, and as Canadian as, well... it’s very Canadian. But that hasn’t stopped ‘em from winning over audiences from Nashville to the Australian Outback. The duo won "Artist of the Year" at the International Folk Awards in New Orleans 2020, with their highly anticipated sophomore album “Assiniboine & The Red” garnering 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a JUNO Award nomination, Critics' Choice for 'Album of the Year' in Penguin Eggs Magazine, and captured the #1 Folk/Roots album spot on the national earshot! radio charts.

Little Church in Big Baddeck:

This exciting concert series provides a wonderful opportunity for local and national audiences to feed their heart and soul with the best of music, song and language, performed by some of the best artists in the world. Our beautiful newly-renovated venue overlooks Baddeck River and seats 100 people so tickets are limited. Early booking advised.

About the organiser

Little Church in Big Baddeck is a new concert series in the community of Big Baddeck, Nova Scotia. The newly renovated Vicar’s View Venue (formerly St. Andrew’s United Church) will play host to Little Church Concerts.

This exciting new concert series will present five concerts per season featuring JUNO, East Coast Music Award, and Canadian Folk Music Award winners. Rose Morrison’s artistic vision for this project is to inspire everyone who comes to the 100-seat venue through music, dance and language.

With initial support from the local government, businesses and community for the upcoming summer 2022 series, it is expected that this intimate setting will provide an opportunity for world-class artists to connect with their audience and to support local tourism in the off-seasons.
