Rushad Eggleston is a revolutionary cellist, composer, poet-philosopher, and entertainer whose unforgettable performances captivate and inspire audiences of all generations. He describes himself as “a traveling cello bandit of wild imagination who aims to spread joy through music.”
A collaborator with fiddle great Darol Anger, and founding member of popular bluegrass revisionists Crooked Still, legendary stringband Fiddlers 4, and explosive rock trio Tornado Rider, Eggleston’s current focus is a solo venture, which perfectly combines his spontaneous off-kilter creativity with his mastery of all forms of musical genre.
In this Ear To The Ground episode, the ‘Cello Goblin’ gives us some first-hand insight into his world of wonder, combined with performance footage and live studio sessions.
