PNC Pavilion welcomes Grammy Award Winning The Goat Rodeo Sessions featuring Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile and special guest Aoife O’Donovan for the first time to Cincinnati on August 20 at 8:00 p.m.
By definition a Goat Rodeo is an aviation term used to designate a situation where a bunch of things will have to go just right for anyone to come out unscathed. The Goat Rodeo Sessions is the name of an all-star eclectic group that masterfully brings together four American string virtuosos that embrace styles and traditions going far beyond classical music.
Yo-Yo Ma joins bassist Edgar Meyer, mandolinist Chris Thile, and fiddler Stuart Duncan, as well as singer Aoife O’Donovan to create this ensemble. With strong bluegrass influences in evidence, The Goat Rodeo Sessions is a landmark performance by four of the greatest instrumentalists of today. While each musician is a renowned superstar in his own sphere, they have come together on a most remarkable and organic cross-genre project stemming from their friendship, and the title concept.
