Michael Glabicki

Michael Glabicki is the lead singer of Uprooted and Rusted Root.

Michael Glabicki, lead singer and guitarist of the popular rock band Rusted Root, will headline the Lindsay Volkswagen of Dulles Summer of Love Music Festival at B Chord Brewing Company on Aug. 17 alongside his new group, Uprooted.

Presented by iHeart Radio, the festival is the official finale to Visit Loudoun’s Summer of Love tour and will feature various local musicians beginning at 1:30 p.m. Uprooted takes the stage at 7:30 p.m.

“Uprooted is an incredible new project I’m working on that expands the Rusted Root material to a whole new level,” Glabicki said in a prepared statement. “We play new versions of the old favorites as well as new material of our upcoming album. It all gels together into [an] amazing experience.”

Glabicki left college to pursue a music career, leading him to form the multi-platinum Rusted Root, according to Visit Loudoun, the county's tourism marketing agency. Uprooted emerged after Rusted Root went on hiatus and includes several members of the most recent Rusted Root lineup, including Dirk Miller, Zil Fessler and Bobby Schneck.

The festival’s other performers include popular local songwriter Todd Wright, R&B outfit The Band-Changed and funk-rock band Hungry on Monday.

“The variety of musicians will appeal to people of all ages. And, what better place to listen to live music than one of our farm breweries, featuring breathtaking views of the countryside,” Visit Loudoun President and CEO Beth Erickson said in a prepared statement.

The day’s attractions will also include food vendors — no outside food is permitted — and the 50 Years of Love beer from B Chord Brewing and wine from Tarara Winery.

B Chord Brewing is located at 34266 Williams Gap Road in Round Hill, about a 20-minute drive from downtown Leesburg.
