Duluth, MN acoustic quintet Trampled by Turtles are returning to the road to support the success of their breakout release, Palomino. Along with the band’s must-see live shows, the infectious lead track, “Wait So Long,” has become a word-of-mouth sensation. Trampled by Turtles’ blend of dazzling speedgrass coupled with thoughtful, Townes Van Zant-esque originals launched them from hometown phenomenon to national status. The band’s unique sound, incorporating the band members’ personal musical backgrounds in punk and rock and roll, makes them a hard act to pigeonhole. Trampled by Turtles’ high-energy shows, featuring tight harmonies, dazzling picking and haunting songs is what brings in converts of all musical persuasions – you have to experience a TBT show to understand the energy and connection between the band and their audiences.
“We are excited that the Turtles are performing after the Brewfest – their Duluth roots and their incredible music seemed like the perfect fit for this event!”, said Jeff Arnovich, co-owner of TwinPortsNightLife.com, who is producing the event.
