The Cactus Blossoms with Dusty Heart

Saturday, October 15, 2022
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Hooligan's Madison East Center | 1400 East Madison Avenue, Mankato, MN

The Cactus Blossoms broke out nationally in 2016 with their JD McPherson-produced debut, You’re Dreaming. Dates with Kacey Musgraves, Jenny Lewis, and Lucius followed, as did raves from the New York Times and NPR, who praised “the brothers’ extraordinary singing.” The band was further catapulted into the spotlight in 2018, when David Lynch tapped them to perform in the return of Twin Peaks, and continued to build on their success with their 2019 sophomore LP, Easy Way, which led Rolling Stone to laud the duo’s “rock-solid, freak of genetics harmonies.”

Dusty Heart features rich vocal harmonies merged with intimate layers of guitar, fiddle and banjo. Barbara Jean and Molly Dean are two songwriters recognized in their own right for their poetic lyrics and distinct vocal styles that when combined create a powerful and haunting sound that takes on a life of its own. Through their shared wanderlust and love of adventure, a passion for the open road, vast landscapes & poetry, as well a mutual love for musical harmony, Dusty Heart has crafted a sound that bridges together the diverse musical worlds of roots, indie, pop and folk.

This event is part of the 2022 Fall Performance Series.

Music starts at 7:00 p.m. Advanced tickets may be purchased at Hooligans. Your tickets will be held at the entrance to Hooligans if you purchase your online tickets October 10-15. Reserved seating is not an option for this concert.
