An Evening with Rusted Root at Moravian College – April 23

Moravian College will play host to "An Evening with Rusted Root" on Friday, April 23, at 9:30 p.m. in Johnston Hall. Rusted Root displays expanded instrumentation and is a colorful mixture of Latin, African, Eastern, Soul, Rock, and traditional American music. The student-run college programming board called IMPACT (Innovative Multi-Cultural Programming Activities for Campus Togetherness) sponsors Rusted Root’s appearance at Moravian College.

Rusted Root has established itself as a major touring entity, headlining venues all across America and Canada. In addition, the band has toured with some of the most legendary icons in rock music history including the Grateful Dead, Page and Plant, Santana, the Allman Brothers, Sting, and others. Rusted Root is also dedicated to multiple environmental and social causes. The band regularly set up food drives at their shows, which benefit local food banks. At the Moravian College show, Rusted Root stickers will be given to ticket holders who donate a can of non-perishable food. The food will be given to a local food-based charity in the Lehigh-Valley.

All tickets are general admission and cost $20. Tickets are available at the Moravian College Bookstore, which is located in the Haupert Union Building (HUB) at Locust and Monocacy streets in Bethlehem. Tickets are also available by telephone at 610-861-1499. If tickets are remaining the day of the show, they will be available throughout the day at the bookstore, and at Johnston Hall box office starting at 8:30 p.m. For general information, call the HUB desk at 610-861-1941.
