The Cactus Blossoms & Nathan Edwards

Nov 21, 2014

The Cactus Blossoms harken back to the roots of country music with their earnest songs and pristine harmonizing.  Hearing their music is like traveling back in time to when country music started crackling on the radio for the first time.  Surprisingly, band leaders/vocalists/guitarists Jack Torrey and Page Burkum grew up in Minneapolis and weren't even raised on country music.  But their tight-knit harmonies mimic some of the early greats.  The Cactus Blossoms enjoyed an 18-month residency at St. Paul's Turf Club.  Their second, and most recent CD, is "Live at the Turf Club."
