4 Musicians, 1 Rodeo

Bookmark and Share

As described by Chris Thile and according to Urban Dictionary, 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."

The Goat Rodeo Sessions is a collaboration of four of the greatest instrumentalists in music today and showcases cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bassist Edgar Meyer, mandolinist Chris Thile, and fiddler Stuart Duncan.

Running with the theme of a goat rodeo, the project uniquely blends the sounds of the four artists, along with gentle harmonic vocals to create an album superbly crafted and is gratuitous in nature.
