A MINNESOTA duo are bringing a taste of Americano to Selkirk tonight (Friday).

The Lowest Pair combine bluegrass banjos, an old time feel and authentic vocal performances to create an organic sound that has thrown them to the top of their field.

Kendl Winter and Palmer T Lee came together in 2013 after meeting on the Midwest American festival circuit and, since then, they have amassed a significant following around the world.

The haunting charm of this duo is a must see for any fans of old-time Americana.

The pair have been praised in recent reviews of their gigs. Lonesome Highway in Ireland dubbed them as ‘a musical marriage made in heaven’, Absolute Magazine have called them ‘incredibly atmospheric’, Folk Radio UK hailed them as ‘music for sunshine and mint juleps’, and American Roots UK said Kendl and Palmer are ‘a huge breath of fresh air’.

Their UK tour will see them play in many towns and cities, including Glasgow and Strathdon in Scotland, Bangor in Wales, Dublin in Ireland, plus Bath, Doncaster and London in England.

The Lowest Pair will perform at Haining House at 8pm on Friday, April 6, doors open at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £12.50 and are available from the Scott’s Selkirk Shop in Selkirk High Street.
