The Lowest Pair
Kendl Winter was drawn to the evergreen forests and the lively, thriving music scene, so she moved to Olympia, Washington. Palmer T. Lee built his first banjo when he was 19, deciding songwriting would be the most effective and enjoyable medium for his musings. He and Kendl first met, on the banks of the Mississippi. Today, fans know that the chemistry between Palmer’s Midwestern charm, those long winters spent listening to a steady diet of Townes Van Zandt and John Hartford, and Kendl’s poetic and playful way with words, her unique approach to the banjo, and her barefoot-in- the-cool-river-water mystique combine to make a powerful sound. Their newest records, Fern Girl and Ice Man, as well as Uncertain As It Is Uneven, could be viewed as two windows in to the growing and changing world of The Lowest Pair and mark the arrival of America’s next great musical duo.
