Rusted Root

Genre: Alternative Rock

Famous for their unique fusion of acoustic, rock and world music, a dynamite percussion section that draws from African, Latin American and Native American influences, and relentless touring, Rusted Root has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide and garnered legions of followers who call themselves “Root Heads.” The band has toured with the likes of Toad the Wet Sprocket, Santana, The Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, HORDE Festival and, perhaps most notably, the highly coveted support role on the landmark Jimmy Page/Robert Plant reunion tour.  Rusted Root’s music has been featured in movies and TV shows such as Twister, Mathilda, Home For the Holidays, Party of Five, Charmed, Homicide, Ice Age, and even on the 2012 Olympic telecasts. In fact, NASA engineers chose Send Me On My Way as “wake-up” music for the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity.  Standout tracks from their new Shanachie debut, The Movement, include the catchy roots-rock novelty “Monkey Pants,” the cool Afro-Caribbean grooves of “Cover Me” and “Fossilman,” and a rootsy ballad in the vein of The Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations.”
