All-Star String Summit 2008
"This show is the dream show, the show of the year, for anybody  
interested in any kind of acoustic music, strings, or fiddling.  These  
young folks are absolutely the future, but they're happening right now.  
Bring your kids and watch their ears grow big and their eyeballs pop."
-Fiddle legend Darol Anger
****************************************************************************
~Old School Freight Train was dubbed "An emerging force to reckon with in today's world of acoustic music" by mandolin giant, David Grisman, and "Accessible but uncompromising in creativity" by the Chicago Tribune.
                                                                                                         
~Grammy nominee Rushad Eggleston is a wildly inventive master of improvisation: his keen skill at adapting driving rhythmic styles to the cello is nothing short of revolutionary.
