Formed in 2017, this four-piece bluegrass band delivers high-energy shows that are sure to get you moving. Their style combines unique songwriting with jam sensibilities that have propelled the band onto premier stages such as the Mishawaka and Fox Theatre. They have hustled their way onto festival lineups—like Rhythms on the Rio, Beanstalk, and Pagosa Folk ‘N Bluegrass—sharing the stage with acts like Kitchen Dwellers, Trout Steak Revival, and Tim O’Brien. In 2022, High Country Hustle released its sophomore album “Weather the Storm,” produced by Jake Simpson of The Lil Smokies.
Cactus Cuts is a captivating five-piece Americana folk band. Drawing inspiration from the
harmonious melodies of the Milk Carton Kids and the virtuosic guitar stylings of Doc Watson,
Cactus Cuts is quickly making waves with their fresh and invigorating sound. Formed in 2022
in the picturesque landscapes of Bozeman, MT, Cactus Cuts weaves together intricate acoustic
arrangements, compelling storytelling, and lush vocal harmonies that are the perfect musical
combination of modern bluegrass and old-time Americana.
At the forefront of Cactus Cuts’ sound are the dynamic duo of Benn and Abel. Their musical
chemistry creates a mesmerizing tapestry of sound that lingers long after the last note fades.
With their heartfelt delivery, the band invites listeners on a sonic journey, with beautiful
ballads, foot-stomping hoedowns, and everything in between. Whether performing in
intimate venues or commanding larger stages, their passion for the music and genuine
camaraderie shine through, creating an unforgettable experience for their audience.
As they carve their path in the Bozeman music scene, Cactus Cuts is quickly gaining
recognition for their unique and compelling sound. Their ability to infuse the traditional roots
of Americana folk with a modern sensibility has garnered them a dedicated and ever-growing
fanbase. With their debut album Fresh Cuts on the horizon, the band is poised to make a lasting
impression, not only in Montana but across the vast American music landscape.
