The Goat Rodeo Sessions is an ambitious and groundbreaking project that brings together four string virtuosos: world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer, and mandolinist Chris Thile.

While each artist is a prominent figure in his own music sphere, they have come together as a unified ensemble on a most remarkable and organic cross-genre project.

The music, including two tracks with female vocalist Aoife O’Donovan, feels both new and familiar -- it’s composed and improvised, uptown and down home, funky and pastoral and above all, uniquely American.

The Barnes & Noble exclusive version includes two bonus tracks: "Parallax" and "Mostly Six Eight." From the Label
