NELSONVILLE, Ohio (WOUB) — The Lowest Pair, a duo who has been together for nearly 10 years, performed their story-filled folk at the Sycamore Sessions on Saturday, September 3.

The duo, which consists of Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee, both play banjo and guitar and switch who plays what throughout the set. The soft sounds of their strings and stunning vocals soothed the audience and was a beautiful way to start the second day of the festival.

They started their set with “Keweenaw Flower,” a song from 2016’s “Uncertain As It Is Uneven” (Team Love Records) about the upper peninsula of Michigan. They then played “It Wished It Was a Song” off their 2022 collaborative album with Small Town Therapy “Horse Camp” (Delicata Records). They followed with “Morning Light” off 2020’s “The Perfect Plan” (Delicata Records) and then “Mason’s Trowel” off “Uncertain As It Is Uneven.”

Next, the duo played “Rosie” from their 2015 “Sacred Heart Sessions” (Team Love Records) followed by “Chandelier,” another track off “Horse Camp.” Winter and Lee closed out the set with “Couple of Jerks” and “Mount Rainier,” both from “Horse Camp.”
