Duluth, Minnesota-based bluegrass band Trampled by Turtles will return to KettleHouse Amphitheater on Saturday, July 27, 2019 with support from Hayes Carll.
Trampled by Turtles previously played at the Amp in 2018 with opening performances from Missoula bluegrass heroes The Lil Smokies and Amy Helm. Check out the photo gallery here.
Trampled by Turtles formed in 2003 and released their first record, Songs from a Ghost Town, in 2004. Blue Sky and the Devil (2005) and Trouble (2007) further explored the band’s contemporary sound, but it wasn’t until 2008 with the band’s fourth release, Duluth, that Trampled by Turtles received recognition by the bluegrass community. Duluth peaked at number eight on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and paved the way for a number of festival appearances.
When Palomino arrived in 2010, it was met with an even greater response, debuting at the top of the bluegrass chart and remaining in the Top Ten for more than a year. Two years later, their crossover appeal landed them at number 32 on the Billboard 200 pop charts upon the release of their sixth album, Stars and Satellites.
In addition to major bluegrass and folk festivals, they began showing up at Coachella, Bumbershoot, and Lollapalooza. The official concert album, Live at First Avenue, followed in 2013, recorded at Minnesota’s most famous venue. A year later, the band returned with the darker-toned Wild Animals, which bettered its studio predecessor on the album charts, reaching number 29. Trampled released their latest album Life Is Good On The Open Road on May 4th, 2018.
