Glabicki bringing Uprooted to Newton

Feb 11 2019 | 02:11 AM

    NEWTON — Back in the 1990s, Michael Glabicki had a vision he was driven to pursue.
    He left college and started a band, despite the fact that he had no idea where the journey would deliver him. He spent two years developing this vision while learning the craft of songwriting. That vision grew into Rusted Root, the multiplatinum band out of Pittsburgh, and Michael became one of music’s most unique voices.
    While Rusted Root is on hiatus, Michael has been devoting his time to creating an entirely new soundscape. Glabicki’s new solo project is aptly titled, Uprooted. This band promises to bring back parts of the Rusted Root of old, but also include more percussion and female vocals. Collectively, the band hopes that the new material will deliver it to a special place that the fans will appreciate. Michael will continue to play Rusted Root’s entire catalogue with freshly inspired versions, as well as introduce new and exciting music under the moniker of Uprooted.
    Uprooted performs Friday, April 26, at 8 p.m. at The Newton Theatre, 234 Spring Street in Newton, NJ. Tickets start at $29 and are available for purchase at The Newton Theatre box office, online at www.TheNewtonTheatre.com, or by calling 973-940-NEWT.
