The Lowest Pair

We all know (or really, really should know) that vaccines don't cause autism. But did you know bluegrass can help those living with the disorder? That's the idea behind Pickin' for Autism, the charitable strum fest benefiting unique-needs charter school Lionsgate Academy. Folk/country duo the Lowest Pair — comprosed of vocalists/banjoists Kendl Winter and ex-Minnesotan Palmer T. Lee — headline on the momentum of their recent sophomore album, The Sacred Heart Sessions. Released on Conor Oberst's Team Love label, the textural and twangy record was recorded at Duluth's venerable Sacred Heart Cathedral studio. Spin, Paste, and other national outlets are beginning to get hip to the pair that splits time between Olympia, WA, and the Twin Cities. Also performing are locals Steve Kaul and the Brass Kings, Kind Country, and Lenz and Frenz.
