Uprooted Band is the new project from Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root, along with Rusted Root’s long-time guitar player Dirk Miller. Rusted Root, the multi-platinum band out of Pittsburgh, evolved around frontman Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a non-genre specific category all its own.
In addition to the full band, Glabicki strips down to the bare essentials on a duo tour where he and longtime bandmate Dirk Miller take the old Rusted Root favorites along with new material and perform re envisioned versions of them in an up close and intimate setting. We go into the crevices of the songs and expand them out and open up the music to whatever happens in the moment, Glabicki says of his shows with Miller. Its completely improvisational, to the point where we surprise ourselves a lot. Things just happen, and I start laughing. Its like we’ve never heard it sound like that before. We have a great time with it and the audience seems to enjoy the musical exploration too. Joining Michael and Dirk are the Pressing Strings. Folky, soulful, bluesy, funky, catchy, smooth, organic are all proper adjectives that describe the Maryland based group. Whether they are playing in a backyard, local brewery, or rocking a festival stage, the melodic quality of the music stands out among the crowd. In addition to their set, they will be playing with Michael and Dirk on their set playing some of your Rusted Root favorites, and some new tracks as well!
