Rushad Eggleston electrifies audiences wherever he displays his virtuosic technique, infectious showmanship and musical passion. Grounded in classical music but highly influenced by rock, bluegrass, hip-hop and a myriad of other alternative styles, he has taken his chosen instrument to new levels of creativity and accomplishment.
After studying with Eugene Friesen at Berklee College of Music, Rushad joined Darol Anger in his recording and touring ensembles, Fiddlers 4 and Republic of Strings. Nominated for a Grammy, the Boston Herald called him “the premier cellist in modern roots music.” His high-octane performances later took shape in the alt-bluegrass band Crooked Still, as well as his own Tornado Rider and Wild Band of Snee. Rushad has taught at a variety of music workshops, including Mark O’Connor’s Fiddle Camp.
