CARRABASSETT VALLEY — Sugarloaf will welcome Rusted Root on Saturday, Feb. 6, as the second installment in its annual Bud Light Concert Series.

Formed in Pittsburgh by singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki in the early ’90s, Rusted Root rose to worldwide fame with the platinum selling album “When I Woke,” which featured the mega-hit song “Send Me On My Way.”

The band has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide and has emerged as one of the industry’s top touring bands, having shared the stage with Toad the Wet Sprocket, Santana, the Grateful Dead, the Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, and Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.

Rusted Root’s music has been featured in numerous compilation albums and on several soundtracks, including “Matilda,” “Ice Age,” “Twister,” “Homicide” and “Party of Five.” “Send Me On My Way” was chosen by NASA engineers as wake-up music for the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity.

The Portland-based band Gypsy Tailwind will open for Rusted Root. Gypsy Tailwind’s style remains rooted firmly within Americana and Roots traditions, flickering between folk, rock and alt-country.

Concert tickets are available by calling 1-800-THE-LOAf or online at www.sugarloaf.com. All Bud Light Concert Series shows are 21-plus and proper identification is required at the door. Doors open at 8:30 p.m.

The yearlong Bud Light Concert Series brings nationally renowned acts to Sugarloaf’s King Pine Room throughout the winter season. There will be four dates this winter, in addition to the annual Bud Light Reggae Festival in April.

Concert ski and stay packages are available. For the complete Bud Light Concert Series schedule, visit www.sugarloaf.com. For more information on Rusted Root, visit www.rustedroot.com.
