Goat Rodeo Sessions on Leno

Another important release this week is Goat Rodeo Sessions, a superstar project from Chris Thile, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Yo-Yo Ma which dropped yesterday (10/25) on Sony Masterworks.

The group was featured on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, joined by Aoifé O’Donovan who sang a duet with Thile on their original song, Here and Heaven.

Before the show aired, these talented musicians traded quips backstage with The Tonight Show’s Bryan Branly, and discussed the new project they were on the show to promote. Watch below, after a brief commercial announcement.

NBC has not yet made video from the musical segment available separately, but you can see it at the end of the full episode video (below). To skip straight to the music, click on the last tick in the time line (to the right) after the commercials play.

Or simply watch this different video of a Here and Heaven live performance.

Great stuff!
