Born as a duo between singer-songwriter Dave Simmonett and mandolin player Erik Berry, Trampled By Turtles grew into a group that quickly gained a reputation for lively stage shows and eccentric instrumental arrangements. The band outgrew its home base in Duluth, Minn., and has been on the road recently with The Infamous Stringdusters, who also appeared on this Mountain Stage show.

The session includes songs culled mostly from the group's breakthrough record Palamino, its fifth release, and includes two songs — "Feed and Bones" and "Wait So Long" — not originally heard on the radio broadcast.

This performance originally ran on December 22, 2010.
