Michael Glabicki is the mind and vision behind the popular and stylistic band Rusted Root. Best known for their Platinum selling album, When I Woke, which produced the hit song “Send Me On My Way,” launched the band into international stardom. This jubilant single is featured in over a dozen movies and TV shows, including "Matilda" and "Ice Age".

Glabicki will bring his distinct vocals and blend of acoustic folk, rock, and world music in a duo performance with long-time bandmate Dirk Miller. They will take the old Rusted Root favorites along with new material and perform re-envisioned versions of them in our Drama Theatre, 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. “It’s completely improvisational, to the point where we surprise ourselves a lot. Things just happen, and I start laughing. It’s 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.”

A multifaceted musician, producer and songwriter, Glabicki’s talents are unique and extremely uplifting. His new projects and music are extensions of his creative talent, and will inspire all those who participate.
