Cactus Rose

Cactus Rose is a native americana act featuring indigenous/black singer-songwriter Kandia Crazy Horse (Pamunkey), indigenous guitarist Lonnie Harrington (Seminole/Shawnee) & guitarist Jeff McLaughlin. Influenced by Richie Havens, Buffalo Springfield, Brandi Carlile, and Tuscarora/Taino icon Pura Fé, their music focuses on experiences of urban natives and others of Indian Country. Kandia’s songs also mine her unique experiences growing up between various countries in Africa and Washington DC to forge her compelling style of Americana. They perform sounds that unify southeastern roots music and Laurel Canyon styles with indigenous futures. Cactus Rose plays throughout Lenapehoking (NYC) where they’re based. On May 3rd 2024, Cactus Rose headlined the Oberlin Folk Festival in Oberlin, Ohio.
