Brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey of The Cactus Blossoms stopped in to The Current's studios to play a few songs and to talk with Bill DeVille as part of the fourth-anniversary show of United States of Americana.
The Cactus Blossoms spoke about their 18-month residency at the Turf Club in St. Paul, Minn., and how it eventually led to the release of their latest album, Live at the Turf Club.
Among other things, Page and Jack also spoke about their musical evolution, how they were able to wrangle some of the area's best roots musicians to join the band, where they've toured over the past year and with a little help from Bill DeVille, who won the 1987 World Series.
