Trampled by Turtles are an American bluegrass-influenced folk band from Duluth, Minnesota. They have released nine full albums, three of which have reached US Billboard bluegrass chart number one spots. Their fifth release, "Palomino" maintained a position in the Top 10 on the bluegrass charts for 52 straight weeks.
 
Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003 when he began piecing together a new band, taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn't rely on amplification. Simonett hadn't played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young  and bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass.
