The Cactus Blossoms August 24th
Museum Summer Concert Series
There is something new happening on the Iron Range! We are excited to announce the next band in our Museum Summer Concert Series. The Cactus Blossoms will bring their timeless sound to our stage on August 24 at 6pm.
With their 2016 Red House debut, You’re Dreaming, The Cactus Blossoms appeared seemingly from nowhere, garnering comparisons to classic sibling duos. Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota; brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkhum found themselves drawn to classic folk and country music, honing their songwriting skills with weekly gigs at former country 1940s honkytonk (and now music club) The Turf Club in St. Paul, MN.
With press ranging from a Rolling Stone "Artist to Watch," NPR Heavy Rotation, NPR All Things Considered, Folk Alley, Noisey, Garden & Gun, CMT, A Prairie Home Companion and much more, the brothers have brought a breath of fresh air and vitality to the roots music scene.
“It won’t take more than one spin for these songs—all but two penned by Torrey– with their lovely, pure melodies and sharp wordplay, to get stuck in your brain.” - American Songwriter
