The local bluegrass boys who made it big return for a concert benefiting the music programs in Duluth public schools.
The last time Trampled by Turtles played this concert they raised $26,236, which resulted in a lot of flutes, coronets, clarinets, xylophones, ukuleles and more that were distributed to local elementary, middle and high schools.
A lot has happened for the six-some since that show.
They released “Stars and Satellites” and landed at the top of Billboard Bluegrass charts, played the “Late Show with David Letterman” and in Europe. They also headlined a flood-relief benefit show at Bayfront Festival Park and landed on a Springsteen tribute album.
Also on the bill: Ol’ Yeller.
