Trampled By Turtles

Newport Folk 2011



One of the most winning moments of Newport Folk 52 came on the Quad stage as Duluth's Trampled By Turtles dove headlong into a bluegrass cover of "Where is My Mind?" by the Pixies. The fiddle and banjo filled in the blanks where Kim Deal's vocals would normally be. I looked down to realize I was wearing my green Pixies shirt. (Unbelievable!) Everybody was singing along to this one - everyone was happy as hell. We all had found a new favorite act, hammered home by this key moment in Fort Adams' musical history!
