Trampled by Turtles is a Minnesota-based American bluegrass-influenced folk band. Dave Simonett, the band’s lead vocalist and guitar player, has become an avid bird hunter, bird dog owner, conservation advocate, as well as a member of both Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever over the last few years. In fact, the band has participated in multiple “Trampled by Pheasants” and “Trampled by Quail” membership campaigns resulting in more than a thousand new PF & QF members.
Chester Floyd works in production for MeatEater, passionately contributing to conservation efforts in every way possible. For him, conservation means preserving what he holds dearest: family, the great outdoors, and the soulful tunes of good music. Chester will be sharing the stage with Carl Hansen, a multifaceted musician from Montana. Both are thrilled and deeply honored to open for Trampled by Turtles, recognizing that this isn't just an ordinary performance; it's an opportunity to support wildlife and raise funds for the conservation of the invaluable treasures they hold close to their hearts
