Georgia Rae at the Bottle Works

November 16 from 3-5 PM

G Rae is on tour!

Join us at the Bottle Works for a performance from the Award Winning fiddler, Georgia Rae.

Tickets are just $10 or $7 for BW Members. Concessions will be available.

Fiddle champ Georgia Rae has discovered the magic of the loop pedal and opened a treasure trove of original material and a one-man show. Quirky and catchy, these songs will invade your life if you let them. Watch her build and give flight to song right before your eyes. Inspired by contemporary artists from the Avett Brothers to Mungo Jerry, and a jazzy feel to her bow, with her loop or her band, Georgia Rae’s music and love for life will follow you out the door and into the next day.

Iron to Arts Corridor Concert Series

Saturday November 23 @ 7:30 PM

The Iron to Arts Corridor Concert Series presents Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root with Dirk Miller at the Bottle Works!
Our Sponsors: Gautier Specialty Metals, Glosser Steel, AmeriServ, and Thomas Buick Honda GMC are bringing Rusted Root front man Michael Glabicki and guitarist, and Johnstown native, Dirk Miller to the Bottle Works!
Join us for an amazing night of music and support the arts in Johnstown. Doors will open at 6:30 PM. A cash bar will be available. Tickets are just $20.
Michael Glabicki
Rusted Root, the multi-platinum band out of Pittsburgh, evolved around front-man Michael Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a non-genre specific category all its own.
In addition to the two decades with Rusted Root, Glabicki is exploring new sounds and opening new doors with his solo career. He has started touring nationally as a duo with Rusted Root’s guitar player, Dirk Miller, and explains that although he has his roots with Rusted Root, this show is very different. Live, both Michael and Dirk play acoustic and electric and Michael often adds rhythm with a kick drum – creating a much fuller sound and energy than you find with a traditional duo.
A multifaceted musician, producer and songwriter, Glabicki’s talents are unique and extremely uplifting. His duo tour dates and new music are extensions of his creative talent, and while the show still features many Rusted Roots hits, it also provides a look into the mind of Glabicki through stories and songs yet to be released.

You’re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You’re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul…a piece of someone else’s life.” Rebekah Joy Plett
If you are an artist and would like to participate in this event, please call us at 814-535-2020 or email Matt Lamb @
