Rusted Root comes to Sugarloaf this Saturday

Band to headline second installment in Bud Light Concert Series 

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, MaineSugarloaf will welcome the one-of-a-kind sound of Rusted Root to its main stage on Saturday, February 6 as the second installment in its annual Bud Light Concert Series 

The year long Bud Light Concert Series brings nationally renowned acts to Sugarloaf’s King Pine Room throughout the winter season, and will feature four dates this winter, in addition to the annual Bud Light Reggae Festival in April.  

Rusted Root was formed in Pittsburgh by singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki in the early 90’s and rose to world wide fame with the platinum selling album When I Woke, which featured the mega-hit song Send Me On My Way. The band has sold more the 3 million albums worldwide and has emerged as one of the industry’s top touring bands, having shared the stage with the likes of Toad the Wet Sprocket, Santana, the Grateful Dead, the Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, and Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.  

Rusted Root’s music has been featured in numerous compilation albums and several soundtracks, including “Matilda,” “Ice Age,” “Twister,” “Homicide,” and “Party of Five.” Send Me On My Way was also chosen by NASA engineers as wake-up music for the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. 

The Portland based band “Gypsy Tailwind” will open for Rusted Root on Saturday night. Comprised of some of Portland’s most session musicians, Gypsy Tailwind has quickly become the new darlings of the Portland music scene. Touching on an array of genres, Gypsy Tailwind’s style remains rooted firmly within Americana and Roots traditions, flickering between folk, rock, and alt-country, gracefully capturing the unclaimed sound that is now completely their own.
