Brother duo The Cactus Blossoms, Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, will be heading to Bristol with their band to perform at the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Festival on Saturday, September 16.
You can also catch them on Bristol Radio’s “Farm and Fun Time” that evening live at the Paramount in Bristol, TN. The Cactus Blossoms bring a new energy and vitality to a classic sound with their blood harmonies and instantly memorable songs — they’re often compared to the Everly Brothers. Rolling Stone writes, “There’s no getting around it: You’re Dreaming is pretty damn dreamy” and Garden & Gun magazine says, “the brothers’ transcendent harmonies shine throughout and the slippery, spooky guitar work gives You’re Dreaming a stamp of authenticity, despite hailing from the frozen tundra of the North Star State.
Recently featured performing their song “Mississippi” live at the Bang Bang Bar on the third episode of Twin Peaks TV series on Showtime, the band premiered their own video for the song with NPR’s All Songs TV. Filmed in the icy waters of their native Minnesota, the band’s haunting, reverb-drenched harmonies and the song’s subject matter — the protagonist makes a jump into the cold, dark waters of the Mississippi — “perfectly captures the strange unease and surreal mystery Twin Peaks is known for” (NPR). The track appears on their debut Red House album, You’re Dreaming, and is also featured on the Twin Peaks soundtrack due out September 8.
The Cactus Blossoms and their band are touring here and abroad this summer, including an appearance in London’s Hyde Park (with Kings of Leon) as well as festival dates. They’ve performed at Newport Folk Fest, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Stagecoach Fest and others and were featured by Rolling Stone Country, NPR Heavy Rotation, NPR All Things Considered, Folk Alley, Noisey, Garden & Gun, CMT, A Prairie Home Companion and more.
