Trampled by Turtles

The inaugural WWG in 2013 began in the parking lot of Crazy Mountain Brewery in Edwards, Colorado and has since grown to a multi-state, multi-genre extravaganza. WinterWonderGrass has cemented it’s place in music festival folklore. With locations in Colorado, California, and Vermont and attracting music fans from all over the country this festival not only provides the infrastructure for world class music ranging from bluegrass, roots, folk and much more, it also provides world class skiing and riding at each location.

Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who'd ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn't rely on amplification.

Mark Joseph’s 2021 solo release, Vegas Motel, is his third full length album and is a highly personal record rooted in the emotion of the year it was written (2020), yet reaching far beyond the confines of the times.

Today, Bonfire Entertainment is excited to announce the return of WinterWonderGrass Colorado, taking place February 25–27, 2022 at Steamboat Resort in the historic and pristinely beautiful ski town of Steamboat Springs, CO. Weekend passes to the festival, as well as Mountaintop Dinner tickets, are on sale now.

Trampled By Turtles is heading to Cayce with a show at one of the largest live music venues operating in the country, the Columbia Speedway Entertainment Center. The band will perform live as part of the Cola Concert Series Thursday, June 24, 2021 at 7:00 PM. Country star Daniel Donato will open. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 23 at 10:00 AM. Fans can get early access to tickets by signing up for the Cola Concerts Speedway Club at ColaConcerts.com.

After a quiet winter in 2020, the Cloud 9 Adventures event season returns with the official announcement of destination music vacation Strings & Sol. The bluegrass-centric concert experience takes fans to the tropics for an all-inclusive vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The event returns to beloved all-inclusive resorts Now Sapphire and Dreams Riviera Cancun from December 9-13, 2021.

The WinterWonderGrass Music & Brew Festival, known for its mix of eclectic bluegrass and Americana artists, local and regional craft brews and world-class skiing and riding, announces today that Trampled by Turtles will be headlining its 2022 Colorado festival, held at Steamboat Resort in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The event, as previously announced, will take place on the weekend of February 25-27, 2022.

The Boch Center has a trio of streaming events throughout the month of February that will include artists like Eddie Vedder, Phoebe Bridgers, Brittany Howard, Trampled by Turtles and Boston’s own Darlingside. Tickets for all of the shows are available now at BochCenter.org.

Stepping out into his own solo project, Dave Simonett of Trampled By Turtles has recently released his new album, Red Tail.
