Winnipeg’s JD Edwards joined us for an impromptu session and interview at the Folk Music Ontario conference this past October. During our wide-ranging conversation, we discussed JD’s involvement with both The JD Edwards Band and his exciting new project, The Small Glories, a duo with Cara Luft, formerly of The Wailin’ Jennys and now forging a successful solo career. The Small Glories expect to release their first album this summer. Music: JD Edwards Band “This House Will Stand” from “Roads & Roads” (2011, Self); JD Edwards “The Stranger” (Live); JD Edwards, “Had I Paid” (Live); JD Edwards “Spirit Dog” (Live) and JD Edwards Band “Singing All The Way Home” from “Roads & Roads” (2011, Self).
