Rushad EgglestonRushad Eggleston is a cello whisperer – he communes with the instrument and goes where it leads. It's anyone's guess what may happen when he takes the stage, but we do guarantee one thing: a night of fabulously inventive, supremely virtuosic, endlessly surprising music.

Raised just down the coast in Carmel, Rushad was the first string student admitted to Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship, and before graduating made his large-scale recording debut, joining fiddle masters Darol Anger, Michael Doucet, and Bruce Molsky in the group Fiddlers 4. Since then, he has toured extensively with Fiddlers 4, Darol Anger's Republic of Strings, the beloved folk/bluegrass group Crooked Still, and his current group, the rocking ensemble Tornado Rider. He continues his quest to leap exuberantly across boundaries and baffle expectations at home in Oakland and at festivals such as Burning Man, the Suwannee Springfest, and Florida's Magnolia Festival.

Rushad has never failed to knock the socks off his listeners as he ushers them into a joyful, eccentric alternate reality. He challenges the fundamental ideas about musical genres, rules, and boundaries – so choose your socks wisely!
