THE CACTUS BLOSSOMS W/BRENNEN LEIGH & NOEL MCKAY
THE CACTUS BLOSSOMS:
"The brother duet that America is waiting for"Garrison Keillor
Brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum grew up in northeast Minneapolis and have been blending their voices as The Cactus Blossoms since 2010. Their hypnotic harmonies and unforgettable songs have made them favorites in the MinneapolisSaint Paul 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.
Brennen Leigh is a songwriter, multi instrumentalist and singer whose to-the-point storytelling style has elevated her to newfound cult status in Europe, across the United States, South America and most notably in her native Austin, Texas. Only slightly less famous for her musicianship, it's easy to see why she's caught the ear of greats like legendary Lubbock fiddler Tommy Hancock (widely regarded as the godfather of West Texas music), who was quoted as saying of Leigh's work; "It's great to hear music that affects you on an intellectual level as well as makes you want to dance".
All musical and performing prowess aside, the thing Brennen has become most famous for is her whip-smart songwriting. Her songs have been recorded by the likes of Lee Ann Womack, Sunny Sweeney, and the Carper Family among others. She has collaborated with songwriting greats such as Jim Lauderdale, John Scott Sherrill and David Olney. Fans flock to hear her perform whatever new composition she has added to her already astounding catalogue of songs. When not on tour, Brennen Leigh splits her time between Austin, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee.
