From the music scene of blue-collar Pittsburgh, comes Rusted Root, a group known for its fusion of acoustic, rock and world music, not to mention jam-packed tour schedule.
This year, that tour makes a local stop at 8 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 31, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Rusted Root’s stop in Grand Junction is part of its 20th anniversary tour so concert-goers can expect to hear a variety of new and old tunes.
Rusted Root released its debut album, “Cruel Sun,” in 1992, then signed with Mercury Records to release the 1994 platinum album, “When I Woke,” which featured hits “Send Me On My Way, “Ecstasy” and “Martyr,” according to rustedroot.com
For the past 20 years, the band has toured with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Santana, The Allman Brothers Band and the Jimmy Page/Robert Plant reunion tour, the website says.
