The Northfield Arts Guild has made the decision to suspend larger public programming through April 5, including the 411 Concert Series concert of The Cactus Blossoms as a safety precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We do hope to reschedule the concert; ticket buyers have received an email with instructions about ticketing options. We thank you for your patience and your understanding.

Blood Harmony. Whether it’s The Beach Boys, Bee Gees or First Aid Kit, that sibling vocal blend is the secret sauce in some of the most spine-tingling moments in popular music. The Cactus Blossoms – Minneapolis-based brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey – offer compelling evidence that this tradition is alive and well, with a deceptively unadorned musical approach that offers “creative turns of phrase, gorgeous harmonies, and an ageless sound” (NPR All Things Considered), not to mention spine tingles aplenty.
Jon Manners has been a staple of the Northfield music scene for decades. His style has evolved since he wrote his first song in the late 1950s to include elements of folk, jazz, soul, rock, and R&B in his clever and poetic lyrics.
