There may be another tarp run in Telluride Town Park on Saturday, July 11th. Rusted Root rolls into town kicking off an evening of invigorating and energetic music that promises to leave townies dancing all night long. Gates opening at 3 P.M. with the ultimate jam band, Rusted Root, taking the stage at six followed by the Godfather of Funk, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic.
Rusted Root’s bluegrass/rock sound has always been heavily influenced by world music such as African, Native American and Latin America, and their long awaited new release Stereo Rodeo is climbing the charts.
Rusted Root is getting ready to celebrate their 20th anniversary, and recently went back into the studio after a seven year break, to produce their latest release. “Stereo Rodeo, is filled with all the different styles you’ve come to expect from Rusted Root, definitely having all the elements you want. From the energetic dance euphoria that Dance in the Middle evokes to the powerful epic sound of Weary Bones,” writes Evan Levy (CBS Radio), of the long awaited eleven-song collection. “We are getting a lot of positive feedback from fans,” says vocalist, guitarist, and primary songwriter, Michael Glabicki, “We are definitely heading in a lot of different directions with this new CD.”
Catch Rusted Root at the KOTO Doo Dah this Saturday, July 11th at 6pm in town park. Tickets are on sale at www.tellurideticket.com $35 for general admission and $75 for VIP
