Home: Rust Machine Records

Rust Machine Records was founded in 2014 to record, share and preserve roots music in the many forms heard along the Mississippi River in America’s Heartland.

Folk music, bluegrass, Celtic, blues, Americana, country — any roots music performed primarily on acoustic instruments in traditional settings interest us at Rust Machine.

Rust Machine makes live and studio recordings of Midwestern musicians, concentrating on artists in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. Recordings are available to the public via free online streaming and from the artists.

Rust Machine Records has a studio in Rock Island, Ill., as well as doing on-location recording.
