One World Tribe and Uprooted Perform for 8 Great Tuesdays
Around the world in 8 Great Tuesdays
Tuesday, Jul. 23
Prepare to take your ears around the globe at the latest installment of 8 Great Tuesdays.
Opening act One World Tribe blends the sounds of reggae, ska, hip-hop, and other diverse genres, touting themselves to be "America's premier world music group." Since 1994, the band's energetic performances have provided countless can't-miss moments to generations of Erieites. Along with captivating music, the band brings a positive message to its forefront, promoting social change, awareness, and inclusivity.
Headlining the night will be Uprooted, featuring Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root. This band brings back parts of the Rusted Root of old, but also includes more percussion and female vocals. Glabicki formed Uprooted with drummer Zil Fessler and guitarist Dirk Miller (who have been touring members of Rusted Root), plus bassist Bobby Schneck Jr. (formerly of the Devon Allman Band), singer-keyboardist Daisie Ghost-Flower, and singer-guitarist Emily Victoria.
About three-quarters of a typical Uprooted set consists of re-envisioned Rusted Root material, with the remainder filled out by new material they've been working on in the studio. Uprooted is more improvisational and groove-oriented than Rusted Root, but just as listenable. — Madeline Dufala
