What is a Goat Rodeo?

Posted By Derek Nance on Oct 23, 2012 |

Yo-Yo Ma, the great classical cellist, has been know to break from the traditional classical music mold from time to time.  His latest collaboration with Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile has created a masterful folk album, entitled “The Goat Rodeo Sessions”.  The four musicians bounce melodies and harmonies between them gracefully, and Ma has no issue taking the classical cello and applying a heavy dose of folk and bluegrass. 

As for what a goat rodeo is, you will probably have to look it up.
