The Rusty String Express celebrates string band traditions of the past while stretching into the unknown. Creating original music with unique and familiar flavors - The RSE is an exciting mash up of acoustic excitement, bubbling creativity, and excellent musicianship. Their repertoire is very original, with each member contributing unique compositions. They tip their collective hat to Thelonius Monk, Dave Brubeck, The Meeters, Duke Ellington, Django Reinhart, Van Morrison, The Black Eyed Peas....and, of course, a handful of ragtime, Irish, old time, bluegrass and American tunes. Swanky string band music at its finest!
