Cornwall Ontario — The Small Glories played Cornwall on Saturday June 20th at Lola’s Pub. The Small Glories, based out of Winnipeg, are a musical union between folk artists Cara Luft and JD Edwards.
Cara Luft, who is a Juno award winner musician, enjoyed her first visit to Cornwall, including a bike ride along the St. Lawrence River.
“What a treat it was to play Lola’s in Cornwall. This was my first visit to Cornwall, and wow, the people we met that night made me wish I had played here before. The local openers (Tracy Lalonde, Pamela Cumming and Dylan Groulx) were incredible. I also had a chance to take a bike ride along the St Lawrence before the show, exploring the waterfront pathway system. Cornwall struck me as a town full of hard working people with big hearts, and I felt incredibly welcome”.
That welcoming feeling was obvious by the sound of ovation from the audience as The Small Glories put on an energetic and heart felt show.
“They were jaw-droppingly good, and such an incredible talent to have been able to see right here in Cornwall. For two people, they made an incredibly full sound – powerful and delicate exactly when it needed to be so. I was honoured to share the stage with them; they are really lovely people”, said Tracy Lalonde.
The Tracy Lalonde Band opened the show and played fantastic set.
he next concert at Lola’s is this Saturday June 27th. Rock and Roll duet Les Deuxluxes from Montreal are headling, and also playing are Ben Dynamite and Chris Benton.
The concert begins at 9pm and there is no cover.
