Commemorating its 20th year as a band and recent release of its new album, “The Movement,” Rusted Root will perform on June 1 at the Tussey Mountain Amphitheater.

The new, fan-funded album showcases Rusted Root’s ability to seamlessly fuse bluegrass instrumentation, African percussion and bluesy vocals into a five-star album. With eight albums under its belt and more than three million records sold worldwide, the rhythmically-charged ensemble attributes the success of their newest album to its fans.

In a recent interview with Relix, Rusted Root founder and front man, Michael Glabicki said: “We had some fans come into the studio for a day and they were part of the record’s energy. It’s getting back to the days of us starting out with our fans being up close and a part of the process.”

The band will play old hits like “Send Me On My Way” and “Ecstasy” in addition to popular tracks from “The Movement.” With a dynamic set, listeners will join Rusted Root on a beautiful and magical journey.

“The new music in the set really has transformed the live show,” Glabicki said. “It is different each night, but there has consistently been a beautiful, woven magic to each show.”

The album features band members Michael Glabicki on lead vocals and guitar, Liz Berlin on vocals and percussion, Patrick Norman on vocals, bass and percussion, Colter Harper on guitar, Preach Freedom on percussion and Dirk Miller on guitar.

The gates will open at 5 p.m. with opening band The Perkolators, followed by Mysterytrain. Rusted Root will play from 8:30 to 11 p.m.
