CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (May 3, 2015) – Minneapolis brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum playing as the Cactus Blossoms performed Sunday evening at the CSPS Hall in the heart of the NewBo district of Cedar Rapids. Once again, the Legion Arts group proved to us that what’s old is new again. The Cactus Blossoms, with their incredibly hypnotic harmonies, brought back honky tonk and unforgetable country-western swing to an acoustically perfect backdrop for such a show. Similar to a recent Pokey LaFarge show at CSPS, I found myself questioning if I (or we) were born into the world a little late. If music is indeed cyclic, and what is old truly does become new again, I’m excited for the future. Oh, and thanks for playing Hank Sr.!
