Not Our First Goat Rodeo Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile

with guest vocalist Aoife O’Donovan
Symphony Hall

The Goat Rodeo Sessions combines the talents of four different solo artists—Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Stuart Duncan on fiddle, Edgar Meyer on bass, and Chris Thile on mandolin—and reunites for the first time in nearly a decade for a one-of-a-kind concert that combines blues and bluegrass with hints of Bach. Joined by vocalist Aoife O’Donovan, these remarkable performers create a unique, genre-breaking sound that’s part composed, part improvised, and uniquely American. The music is so difficult to pull off, the group likens it to a Goat Rodeo – an aviation term for a situation in which 100 things need to go right to avoid disaster. The audience for this one-of-a-kind ensemble’s Boston debut in 2012 will never forget their first Goat Rodeo!
