SNOWBALL COUNTDOWN 5 – Trampled By Turtles


We are very excited to cover Snowball festival this year! In honor of the fest we are going to be featuring an artist on the blog every day for the next 5 days to countdown the festival. Snowball is March 2nd-4th. Snowball will be displaying an array of bands from the heavy dubstep genre to the light acoustic jam style.


Todays featured artist is Trampled by Turtles. They are a very talented laid back band with a smooth acoustic sound. They will be releasing a new album titled “Stars and Satellites” on April 10th. Trampled by Turtles is Dave Simonett, Tim Saxhaug (bass, vocals), Dave Carroll (banjo, vocals), Erik Berry and Ryan Young (fiddle). Within the contained music scene of Duluth, the members of the band did their own time in punk and rock bands, brandishing their electricity proudly before switching to acoustic instruments. While they never set out to be a “bluegrass” band, Trampled by Turtles employs many of the same traditional techniques of the genre, but their differences in influences, attitude and attack make for their unique sound.
This is one of those morning coffee bands to make your day start out smooth. Check them out if you are interested. They will be playing lots of big festivals this year as well! Here is their tour dates:
