    DEAD MAN WINTER with special guests: The Cactus Blossoms

    DEAD MAN WINTER with special guests: The Cactus Blossoms

    Pioneer Place Theatre Company
    June 10, 2017

    In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of KVSC Radio on the campus of St. Cloud State Universary, we are throwing an amazing double bill concert on Saturday, June 10 featuring Dead Man Winter along with The Cactus Blossoms.

    DEAD MAN WINTER
    Playing a bull-bodied, emotionally resonant brand of Americana-infused indie rock, Dead Man Winter is a group led by Dave Simonett, best known as one of the founding members of the progressive bluegrass group Trampled by Turtles.
    Furnace marks a whole lot of firsts for the accomplished songwriter. It’s his first time putting his long-running, popular string band, Trampled by Turtles, on hiatus to focus all of his efforts on a more personal project. It’s his first time speaking so plainly and literally about something happening in his private life. And it’s his first time dedicating an entire record to a single topic — a topic so significant and intimate that he questioned whether or not he should even release it into the world.

    THE CACTUS BLOSSOMS
    Country music has a long-held appreciation for sibling bands, and it seems there’s no sweeter sound than two brothers harmonizing over a sad country tune. The Cactus Blossoms play country music the way the best always have: with an ear for universal truth in commonplace stories and for real emotion in simple melodies and beautiful harmonies. We are sure that Voice Works participants will revel in those harmonies and learn how to create that magic for themselves.“The brother duet that America is waiting for” – Garrison KeillorBrothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum are not from the south; they’re native Minnesotans.
