Trampled by Turtles formed in Duluth, Minnesota, in 2003, and has become a crossover sensation. Within the contained music scene of Duluth, the members of the band did their own time in punk and rock bands, brandishing their electricity proudly before switching to acoustic instruments. While they never set out to be a “bluegrass” band, the members of Trampled by Turtles employ many of the same traditional techniques of the genre. Their difference in influences, attitude, and attack make for a unique sound. The band has performed at many national festivals including Coachella and Pickathon, and this summer will see the guys at Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. Their newest album, Stars and Satellites, was released in April.
