World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma will bring his Grammy Award-winning bluegrass collaboration, Goat Rodeo Sessions, to the Meadow Brook Music Festival on Wednesday, August 21 at 8 p.m.

An astounding group of virtuosos – Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Chris Thile on mandolin, Edgar Meyer on bass and Stuart Duncan on fiddle – come together in this Grammy award-winning collaboration. From high-spirited Celtic and bluegrass stylings to jazzy improvisations and more, the music transports you to magical heights with heart-rending ballads and Americana energy. Aoife O'Donovan will join Goat Rodeo as guest vocalist.

This performance, presented by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Palace Sports & Entertainment, is part of a long history of collaboration between the two organizations at Meadow Brook Music Festival.
