The Faulkner County Library welcomes the return engagement of The Lowest Pair on Sunday, February 15 at 2:00 PM.
A traveler, a dreamer, and a banjo pickin’ songstress from Arkansas, now settled in the lush Eden green of Olympia, Washington. Kendl Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of the tour van and spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Her voice is beautifully unique and bold, and her songs are thoughtfully poetic and rooted deep within her diverse experiences. Previously of the Blackberry Bushes String band, she has branched off and out into new projects and new frontiers. Her captivating performances and solo work are even more powerful and mesmerizing. Stemming from an old-time and bluegrass bend grown from punk roots, Kendl brings to The Lowest Pair her wonderfully weaving poetry of song, old and new, a voice somewhere between Gillian Welch and Iris DeMent and throwing a little Olympia twist on those familiar sounds.
Minnesotan picker and songcrafter Palmer T. Lee was nineteen years old when he inherited a couple of banjos and discovered he could reassemble them into his dream instrument. He's been tweakin' and twangin' away ever since. Fronting Minneapolis's much loved high energy bluegrass band The Boys n' the Barrels, supporting several other Minneapolis based bands and songwriters including Drew Peterson and The Dead Pigeons, and Black Audience... and now working in duet with Kendl Winter, The Lowest Pair. Solo, he is a performance not to be missed. His voice is warm and sad with longing like that of Townes Van Zandt yet laughing and whooping like that of John Hartford. Palmer's songs are distilled into the warm sweet sounds of his percussive wordplay and the melodic interludes of his own unique style played on his pieced together banjo.
