The Duluth quintet has been steadily expanding its fan-base for the past decade, and the release of their fifth record Palomino undeniably helped propel them into greater mass appeal. It reached #1 on the US Bluegrass charts and stayed in the top 10 for over a year. It should come as no surprise then that the year which followed the release proved to be Trampled By Turtles' most important year yet, solidifying their role as one of the major players of Minnesota music making an impact nationally and abroad.

Stars and Satellites sees them taking a more introspective view. It's quieter and builds slower, but the album is also one which feels right for the band at this point of their career. Inward examination is prevalent on this effort and ends up providing one of the most personal and engaging experiences for Trampled By Turtles' fans yet.

Songs performed: "Midnight On The Interstate," "Alone," and "Walt Whitman"
