There is no mistake, you are in the right place. Pachyderm beckons. The studio once still and silent is awash with people inside and out. The drive up to the 1963 built Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house is ringed with gates festooned with majestic elephants, and in the planted bed in front of the prairie style rambler there lives a trio of Pachyderms, trunks joyously raised in greeting.

The Lowest Pair CD Release

The Lowest Pair is a quirky, old-time roots influenced duet, featuring the high lonesome harmonies of banjo pickin’ songsters Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee. After nearly a year of traveling the country playing clubs, hotels, house shows, back yards and street corners, they found their way back to Minnesota, this time to Duluth where they sat down to record with producer Dave Simonett (Trampled by Turtles) and Tom Fabjance at an old church. The Sacred Heart Sessions (Feb 24, 2105) is an album that allows the listenier to enter the space that surrounds its creation. One can virtually feel the walls and vaulted ceiling of the old wooden church rising up, creating a natural reverb and warming the air.

Come join in the celebration as The Lowest Pair officially launch The Sacred Heart Sessions on home turf!

Dave Simonett will even be on hand to perform an opening set.
