Part of our series of Live! Folklife Concerts.
Rusticator is an acoustic band with an Americana spirit. Stripped back drums and a hollow-bodied bass lend a woody backbeat, while steady acoustic guitar supports jazz-inflected fiddle playing and the group’s three-part harmonies. The four-piece group consists of Tony Califano, guitar, vocals; Joe Gumpper, fiddle; Brig McCutcheon, bass; Derek Dobson, percussion. The quartet has been entertaining Capital Region audiences since 2013 and released their second album, Get it While it Lasts in August 2017. Rusticator has been featured at Saratoga’s First Night and Mabee Farm’s Howlin’ at the Moon concert series.
