Friday Favorites - State Fair Grandstand
I'm looking forward to hearing The Cactus Blossoms at the State Fair Grandstand on Saturday, August 30, 4:00pm.
MN Music On-A-Stick, presented by 89.3 The Current, is a musical evening celebrating artists with roots in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. This one-of-a-kind event returns to the Grandstand for the third year in a row with a new group of Minnesota artists. The 2014 lineup includes Brother Ali, Doomtree, Bob Mould, Cloud Cult, Har Mar Superstar and The Cactus Blossoms.
Brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum grew up in northeast Minneapolis and have been crooning country tunes as The Cactus Blossoms since 2010. Their hypnotic, timeless and unforgettable songs have made them favorites in the Twin Cities music scene. Their latest album, Live At The Turf Club, blurs the line between old and new as they sneak a few originals into their repertoire of early country and Western swing.
Here's a great video of a recent performance at the Sioux River Folk Festival 2014...
