An Evening with Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root and Dirk Miller
It was 30+ years ago that Michael Glabicki dropped out of college to start a band. At that time, he had no idea what he was going to do or how to get there. Glabicki spent two years learning how to write songs and create a vision. Rusted Root was then born.
The multi-platinum band out of Pittsburgh evolved around front-man Michael Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a non-genre-specific category all its own. Rusted Root built their career around dramatic performances; their polyrhythmic, multicultural rock-and-soul picked up fans like a junkyard magnet as they swept across the nation on tour.
In many ways, Glabicki is starting this process all over again. He is challenging himself to write in completely new and different ways to create an entirely new sound landscape. Michael takes all the new songs and old favorites Rusted Root has been performing and performs re-envisioned versions of them in a more intimate setting with Rusted Root’s long-time guitar player and background vocalist, Dirk Miller.
A multifaceted musician, producer, and songwriter, Glabicki’s talents are unique and extremely uplifting. His solo tour dates and new music are extensions of his creative talent and will inspire all those who participate.
