Trampled by Turtles is one of the best bluegrass bands around, sort of. They hesitate to ascribe any particular label to their unique sound.

When asked to clarify, front man Dave Simonett said, “I don’t really know what to say when I’m asked that. I hesitate to say bluegrass because I’m familiar with that kind of music. I feel it is a genre that has set boundaries  and anytime you stray, you’re not really considered a bluegrass band no matter what instruments you’re playing on. I would say it’s Americana with string instruments, but whatever anyone wants to call it, that’s fine.”
