The Cactus Blossoms weren’t born in the wrong era. They just got into some music from a different era and found a way to make it their own. Their new album, You’re Dreaming, is the culmination of several years of songwriting and the kindness of thousands of miles and friends. With a cast of characters, experiences, and personal perspectives, set in simple rhymes and sung in harmony, the band tries to paint a picture in your mind. We couldn’t be more excited about having these guys at the C-U Folk and Roots Festival!
