(Canceled) Not Our First Goat Rodeo

The Not Our First Goat Rodeo concert, presented by Edgefield Concerts and the Oregon Symphony, scheduled for August 18 at Edgefield Concerts on the Lawn, has been canceled.  The cancelation is in response to Oregon State Governor Kate Brown’s recent guidelines for counties and businesses on the phased reopening process, and we hope to reschedule at a future date.

Yo-Yo Ma – Stuart Duncan
Edgar Meyer – Chris Thile

With featured vocalist Aoife O’Donovan

An astounding group of virtuosos – Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Stuart Duncan on fiddle, Edgar Meyer on bass, and Chris Thile on mandolin – reunite live for the first time in nearly a decade. Joined by featured vocalist Aoife O’Donovan, the lively talents of these exceptional artists come together on stage to create a singular sound that’s part composed, part improvised, and uniquely American – music so complex to pull off that the group likens it to a goat rodeo, airplane pilots’ nickname for a situation in which many different things need to go right to avoid disaster. In the words of the Los Angeles Times, this concert presents “unlikely musicians on unlikely instruments in concerts ... that [are] part blues, part bluegrass and a smidgen of Bach.”

Presented by Oregon Symphony and Edgefield Concerts. The Oregon Symphony does not perform.

Tickets are $69.50 (General Admission Lawn), $189.50 (Section C Reserved), or $225 (Section B Reserved).
