RUSTED ROOT's Michael Glabicki with Dirk Miller
Michael Glabicki Rusted Root
Rusted Root's unique music evolved around front-man Michael Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a 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've toured across the US, including festivals and annual shows at the Mirror Lake concert series in Lake Placid.
In addition to two decades with Rusted Root, Glabicki is exploring new sounds with his solo career. He is currently touring with bandmate Dirk Miller, and while the two play well-known Rusted Root's hits, the sound is very different.
Tickets: $15 / $10 under 18
Advance reservations strongly encouraged! Email reservation to or call 518-963-4170.

RED TAIL RING is the musical brainchild of two old-time-minded Michiganders – Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. The collaboration blends the loving attention of revivalist fervor with the playful creativity of starting from scratch. Whether rendering a traditional tune or original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, jawharp, and plain-old foot stomping. Fresh off the release of their new CD, Fall Away Blues, they will captivate you with their sound and songs. We're thrilled to bring them to the Grange.
