Published Aug 31, 2018 at 4:00pm

Mohawk Valley Community College’s Rome campus will host Michael Glabicki of the band Rusted Root and guitarist Dirk Miller in concert on Thursday, Sept 13 at 7 p.m. in Festine Auditorium in the Plumley Complex.

General admission for the show is $20, admission for MVCC students/faculty is $10, the
college has announced.

Glabicki formed Rusted Root after leaving college, eventually going multi-platinum with the group. The band got its start as a house band playing a weekly show in a bar on Pittsburgh’s South Side.

The band achieved stardom 1994 with its album “When I Woke,” which featured the hit song “Send Me on My Way,” which reached the Billboard hit singles charts.

Rusted Root is currently on hiatus, and Glabicki describes his current sound as being evocative of his old band, though including more percussion and female vocals.
