Chris Thile, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Yo-Yo Ma: The Goat Rodeo Sessions
Chris Thile, Stuart Duncan and Edgar Meyer will join Yo-Yo Ma on the forthcoming album The Goat Rodeo Sessions. The group explains, a goat rodeo is “about the most polite term used by aviation people (and others in higher risk situations) to describe a scenario that requires about 100 things to go right at once if you intend to walk away from it.” As one can expect, the album is a mix of classical arrangements and bluegrass instrumentation. The musicians will release The Goat Rodeo Sessions on October 25. A video of one of the album’s songs, “Attaboy,” is also available online.
