Rusted Root announce winter tour + dates with Donna the Buffalo [Video]


Rusted Root are happy to announce their winter tour dates. They’ll be joined on some by Donna the Buffalo and in New York City by the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.

One wouldn’t assume that Rusted Root knew how to put technology to use. But that sure ain’t the case. They took a day on the road in between cities behind and ahead and directed their road crew in the filming of a video for “Cover Me Up.” Armed only with their GO PRO cameras, the band and crew got to work. Tour manager Larry Dawgello and band member Liz Berlin did the editing. The idea for the video came from the fans and the overwhelming desire to hear the song performed.

“Cover Me Up” is off of their newest release The Movement on Shanachie Entertainment.

High Times states, “Thank goodness peace, love, and great grooves haven’t fallen out of fashion, because Rusted Root delivers all this and more with their seventh studio album, The Movement.” Pittsburgh Music Magazine finds “the entire band has moments to shine on ‘The Movement’ and Root truly stays loyal to form while also not churning out the same old stuff. It’s nice to see Mike and his bandmates still at it and producing such quality material.”

Highly recommended for loyal Rusted Root fans and ‘newbies’ alike, The Movement features original members. Michael Glabicki (lead vocals, guitar), Liz Berlin (vocals, percussion), and Patrick Norman (vocals, bass, percussion), Colter Harper (guitar), Preach Freedom (percussion) and Dirk Miller (guitar).

Rusted Root are best known for their fusion of bluegrass and rock as well as their inspired use of percussion that is drawn from African, Latin America, Native American and Middle Eastern influences and defies categorization. Over the last several years they have sold more than 3 million albums worldwide and they have toured the world and the US 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.

That Magazine states “If there is one band to check out this year for the ideal live experience, Rusted Root is that band.” So beloved are their live performances, that the never-ending tour just goes further and further with no end in sight.
