While each artist is a prominent figure in his own musical sphere, all four have come together for their first concert to create what critics are now hailing “a most remarkable and organic cross-genre project in which the fire and drive of the bluegrass world meet the clarity and class of the classical music world.” The concert was recorded at Boston’s House of Blues.

The Goat Rodeo Sessions Live: Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile, Friday at 11 p.m. on PBS-HD 6.
