You can hear strains of Trampled by Turtles' punk and rock history in their breakneck pace and compelling vocal melodies, but they left their electrical instruments behind years ago in favor of the banjo, mandolin and fiddle. Their reputation draws crowds from all over Minnesota and the country to their explosive live performances. On their latest release, "Palomino," Trampled by Turtles have perfected their particular blend of folk and bluegrass.
Trampled by Turtles stopped by the Current booth at the Minnesota State Fair for a live performance.
