Rusted Root returns to Party In The Park | Arts & Culture
Party In The Park welcomes Rusted Root to the third week of the outdoor concert series. On June 21, the platinum-selling group will be joined by special guests Balkan Beat Box and Lauren Mann & the Fairly Odd Folk. The 10-week concert series takes place every Thursday from 5p to 10p at the Riverside Festival Site on the corner of Court and Exchange Streets. The huge outdoor concert brings more than 20 nationally and internationally recognized musical acts to downtown Rochester.
Rusted Root, which celebrates their 20th anniversary this year, has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide. Formed in Pittsburgh by singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki in the early ‘90s, Rusted Root’s worldly style quickly charmed fans of roots music and world rock. After debuting in 1992 with the self released Cruel Sun, Rusted Root signed with Mercury Records and released the 1994 platinum selling breakthrough When I Woke, which featured the hit songs “Send Me On My Way,” “Ecstasy” and “Martyr.” Not long after, the band scored on tours with Toad the Wet Sprocket, Santana, The Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, HORDE Festival and, perhaps most notably, the highly coveted support role on the landmark Jimmy Page/Robert Plant reunion tour.
This will be the third time Rusted Root has played Party In The Park. Their last appearance in 2010 brought in one the largest crowds in the history of Party In The Park.
