The Minor Key Concert Series at The Old Church was created to showcase the best singer-songwriters this world has to offer. Genres will range, but the stories will linger. Set in Portland's oldest still standing church, you will find yourself set in one of the most intimate venues around.

The Lowest Pair features the duo banjo picking of Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee, draped in Kendls high lonesome harmonies and Palmers Midwestern croon. In Spring of 2016, Team Love releases two new collections:Fern Girl and Ice ManandUncertain As It is Uneven. The albums could be viewed as two windows into the growing world of The Lowest Pair. Uncertainstays the course of their previous releases,36cents and The Sacred Heart Sessions, being focused on stripped down, intimate arrangements to support their timeless songwriting and haunting vocals. Fern Girlis a more moody and adventurous exploration of new sounds, new studio production directions, and what it might sound like for The Lowest Pair to be backed by a full band, while keeping one foot planted in the rootsy aesthetics which drew them together from the beginning.

Kendl Winter, born in Arkansas, moved to Olympia, Washington after high school, drawn to the evergreen forests and the lively and thriving music scene. She put three solo records out on Olympias indie label, K Records, and performed in nationally-touring northwest string bands before beginning The Lowest Pair in 2013 with Palmer T. Lee.

Meanwhile, Minneapolis native Palmerspent several years honing his song craft and banjo picking as the front man of Twin Cities bluegrass outfit the Boys 'n the Barrels. Palmer built his first banjo when he was 19 from pieces he serendipitously inherited. Shortly after deciding songwriting would be the most effective and enjoyable medium for his musings, he began cutting his teeth fronting Minneapolis string bands and touring the Midwest festival circuit, which is where he and Kendl first met, on the banks of the Mississippi.
