About the band: Rusted Root has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide, and was formed in Pittsburgh by singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki in the early ‘90s. The band quickly charmed fans of roots music and world rock. After debuting with their self-released album “Cruel Sun,” Rusted Root signed with Mercury Records and released the 1994 platinum-selling breakthrough “When I Woke,” featuring hit songs “Send Me On My Way,” “Ecstasy” and “Martyr.” The band has been on tour with Santana, The Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band and on the Jimmy Page/Robert Plant reunion tour. Known for creating a unique fusion of acoustic rock, world and other styles of music, Rusted Root’s sound uses a strong percussion section that draws from African, Latin American and Native American influences.
