The Cactus Blossoms – The Cactus Blossoms

  • September 12, 2012

If you are looking for fresh traditional country then you are going to love The Cactus Blossoms’ self titled album. Brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum hail from Minnesota yet their music is faithful to country sounds of yesteryear, complete with finger-picking, twang, and soaring harmonies. The production brings clarity to each of the tracks which are loaded with pedal steel, fiddle, and heartbreak. Joining the two are seasoned pickers Mike “Razz” Russell (fiddle), Randy Broughten (steel guitar, dobro), and Liz Draper (upright bass). I was lucky enough to catch The Cactus Blossoms at the Pickathon Festival, and their music is down right infectious – be sure to catch them live as they put on a heck of a show. – Written by JFelton
