The Cactus Blossoms | Mississippi | The Lowertown Line

submitted by LameCliche on 07/01/17 1

The brothers behind Minneapolis band The Cactus Blossoms have a knack for writing songs that harken back to another era of folk- and country-inspired music. Small towns on the prairie. Wistful love affairs. Toil and trouble. In their own words, “That's when the wheel got going and gave the illusion of spinning backwards. We weren't born in the wrong era. We just got into some music from a different era and found a way to make it our own.” Don’t miss the full-length episode on lowertownline.org: www.lowertownline.org/video_artist/the-cactus-blossoms/. About the episode Watch The Cactus Blossoms perform their heart-wrenching tunes in front of a sold-out crowd. Brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum also discuss their connection to rural music and how they’ve navigated the maze of the music industry. Filmed on March 10, 2016.
