Americana duo The Cactus Blossoms, featuring brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkham will return to Bush Hall, showcasing their critically acclaimed 60s country pop group sound to UK Americana fans, who will no doubt fall head first for the brother’s unique, charming and stylish re-imagination of music from the early to mid 20th Century.
“We are delighted to be performing in the UK again – we are big fans of the UK and it’s appreciation of Americana and Country music, there’s a great scene building over here and we are honoured to be part of it. There are some incredible UK Americana performers like Yola Carter and William The Conqueror who are helping spotlight the UK scene stateside. The roots music scene has continued to grow over here too, with lots of young singer-songwriters like Margo Price, Erin Rae and Sturgill Simpson helping bring roots music into the mainstream. Sturgill getting the Grammy nomination feels like it’s blown everything wide open and will help creating big opportunities for new artists like ourselves – its an exciting time.”
Brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkham, born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota are The Cactus Blossoms, a close harmony family duo who began their journey to becoming one of the most promising acts in the young Americana scene by performing well-known and obscure country songs in a former Honkey Tonk bar in Minnesota capital, St. Paul. The brothers then began writing their own music and critical acclaim quickly followed. There own music was closely comparable to the early work of The Everly Brothers, who are the duo’s main source of inspiration, alongside artists including Hank Williams. Through their re-imagination of the stripped back close harmony country and pop groups of the early 1960s, The Cactus Blossoms have developed an ageless rejuvenation of the classic sound for the modern era. Gorgeous harmonies are paired with minimal retro-sounding instrumentation. Vintage guitars, with their springy reverb are backed by subtle upright bass and soft brush hit drums. The brothers authentic music has already won plenty of fans states side including revered modern retro star JD McPherson who became the producer behind their critically acclaimed debut You’re Dreaming.
Praised by publications including Rolling Stone, NPR, Folk Alley, Noisey, Garden & Gun and CMT - The Cactus Blossoms are fast on the rise, with Rolling Stone Country describing it as “pretty damn dreamy.”
“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
