The Goat Rodeo Sessions

In 2011, Yo-Yo Ma teamed up with some of the best in bluegrass to produce “The Goat Rodeo Sessions.” The project brings together Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Stuart Duncan on fiddle, Chris Thile on mandolin and Edgar Meyer on bass. Two of the tracks also feature one of my favorite vocalists of all time – Aoife O’Donovan.

In 2012, the project’s going on the road. You can catch it live at House of Blues in Boston, or at theaters in one of those weird “live movie event” things. I’m not so sure about that, but you should definitely buy the album.
