Trampled by Turtles got their start in Duluth, Minnesota back in 2003. The band's sound blends bluegrass with folk and rock music. TBT has grown a huge national following through constant touring and playing high-profile festivals like Coachella, Stagecoach, Bumbershoot, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, the Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Floyd Fest.
Trampled by Turtles last two albums have topped the Bluegrass chart, and the band's latest album, 2012's Stars and Satellites, also cracked the Top 20 on the Indie, Folk, Alternative, and Rock charts.
