The Goat Rodeo Sessions
I know what you’re going to say: “Yoyo Ma playing bluegrass? Really?” Really.
If you haven’t heard of The Goat Rodeo Sessions yet, consider this your wake up call. Just imagine – the musical virtuoso and cellist prodigy Yoyo Ma plus the award-winning bluegrass-er Stuart Duncan PLUS the jazzy contrabassist Edgar Meyer PLUS the dreamy folk-inspired mandolin-playing Chris Thile. These four musicians, all stellar in their own rights, have come together to craft the album The Goat Rodeo Sessions, an eleven-song bluegrass journey with soul, power, and intoxicating sound.
If the folk revival is where your music’s gone recently, The Goat Rodeo Sessions is where it needs to be now.
