NCM Fathom and Sony Classical are excited to bring The Goat Rodeo Sessions LIVE featuring Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile to movie theaters nationwide on Tuesday, January 31 at 7:30pm ET/ 6:30pm CT/ 8:00pm MT/PT/HI/AK tape delayed (local time). This exclusive concert event will be broadcast LIVE from the House of Blues® Boston and brings together four string virtuosos: world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, legendary Bluegrass fiddler Stuart Duncan, acclaimed bassist Edgar Meyer, mandolin wizard Chris Thile, and guest vocalist Aoife O'Donovan. 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 feels both new and familiar – it’s composed and improvised, uptown and down home, funky and pastoral and above all, uniquely American.
Don’t miss this exclusive LIVE concert event on Tuesday, January 31. Visit www.FathomEvents.com for tickets and participating theatres.

This Tuesday, December 27 on CBS, you can watch the broadcast of The Kennedy Center Honors. This year, the Kennedy Center recognized Yo-Yo Ma, along with Meryl Streep, Barbara Cook, Sonny Rollins, and Neil Diamond. The Washington Post praised the salute to Yo-Yo: "The show’s finale was an extended tribute to Ma, which was a bit of a surprise, given that the last spot is usually reserved for a stirring medley of the pop-music honoree’s big hits. But the final musical mash-up was somehow appropriate for Ma, the much-celebrated cellist who has regularly wandered far from his classical roots. First came an introduction by Stephen Colbert (Ma has been a guest on his show) followed by remarks from Elmo (Ma has appeared on his show, “Sesame Street”). The performance segment included a classical quintet, a bluegrass trio and the world-music Silk Road Ensemble."
