Late to the Trampled By Turtles Party

Thanks to bands like The Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons, we’re witnessing the resurgance of the banjo in alternative music. But with Trampled By Turtle, there’s no half-stepping. The Duluth five-piece outfit does bluegrass as God intended, and they’ll bring their act to First Avenue for two sold out shows next weekend.

I’m late to the party. Didn’t really appreciate the band until recently when I downloaded their latest album, Palamino. Check it out.
