notloB is Coming out of Hibernation, presenting Rushad Eggleston December 5 & 15
notloB Parlour Concerts has been in a long hibernation (its last concert, entitled "Celebrate Midsummer Eve with Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert" was June, 20, 2018), waiting for a "special" artist to present for its 200th. That "special" artist has turned out to be the one and only Rushad Eggleston, founding member of Darol Anger’s Republic of StringsCrooked Still, and Tornado Rider, and six-time notloBBer.
Concert #200 will be Thursday, December 5, appropriately at Outpost 186in Inman Square, Cambridge, a familiar notloB haunt, which was the home to 29 presentations between February, 2013 and July 2015; coincidentally, the first there was #100, headlined by Eggleston.  #201 and 202 will be Sunday, December 15 at a new venue in Harvard, MA, its 19th century library re-purposed as a gallery/performing arts center, "Fivesparks." 
Jeff Boudreau, notloB’s chief cook and bottle washer, has had his eye on Fivesparks for some time and actually had two concerts planned but first a construction delay then a completion delay nixed both. "The first cancellation was particularly hard to take", opines Boudreau, as it would have been a fabulous birthday present. Fivesparks construction did not began until two months after the planned date. The second had been planned for March, 2019.
"But now we're back with a trifecta", explains Boudreau. Rushad called just a couple weeks ago, not knowing I had moved to Harvard in 2017, asking for a "Boston gig". After establishing I was now 35 miles west of Inman Square, he asked if we could do two gigs, one each in Cambridge and Harvard. Having seen Rushad perform numerous times for children at the Rhythm and Roots (Rhode Island) and Grey Fox Bluegrass (New York) festivals I came up with the idea of two Harvard concerts, an afternoon children's and evening adult. That is how things evolve when working with Rushad." Boudreau is hopeful the Eggleston concert will be the first of a new curated acoustic music series with old notloB friends, who include notable fiddlers Darol Anger, Brittany Haas, Natalie Haas, Hanneke Cassel.

About the artist:
“Eggleston is a
n eclectic, whimsical, inventive performer and personality…a cello player with a difference. Calling himself the Ambassador of Sneth and Wild Cello Goblin, Eggleston improvises in fiddle styles on the cello. Now touring the world—from Italy to Belgium and beyond—as a solo performer on cello, vocals, and kazoo, he wears a jester costume and sings in his own imaginary language.”
