Hey, let’s do it again. The first Rusted Root show at Jannus Live in May was such a success we figured we had to. The Pittsburgh world-pop band put on a rousing two-hour show that left the crowd ecstatic. If you missed it, DO NOT miss this one. There’s just something about the band’s show that works so much better under the stars than indoors.
2010 marks the 20th year for Rusted Root, a hard-touring six-piece out of Pittsburgh, Pa. that has carved itself a lasting niche in the world/jam scene. The group’s hooky, percussion-heavy sound brims evokes a optimistic energy. Their lyrics evoke utopianism, environmental consciousness and overall good vibes.
Rusted Root started out indie, cranked out a few hit albums and singles (including the anthem “Send Me On My Way”) in the ’90s. Performing is the band’s staple, though, and they’ve become a much-loved headlining act — lifting, stirring and charming audiences throughout the world.
