trampled by turtles

Trampled by Turtles does bluegrass the way it's meant to be. old school and quiet. their new album Palomino has some beautiful compositions complete with the heart-breaking ballad 'Widower's Heart' and the country number 'Victory'.

here's what my favourite reviewer has to say about them:  

Palomino is a brilliant record that balances furious energy, calming ballads, frantic finger-picking, three-part harmonies, and startlingly good songwriting. 

Dave Simonett - guitar/vocals
Ryan Young - fiddle 
Erik Berry - mandolin/vocals 
Dave Carroll - banjo, vocals 
Tim Saxhaug - bass/vocals
