Goat Rodeo Live brings together the artistry of four string virtuosos: renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bluegrass fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolin wizard Chris Thile. 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.” Marvel at the quartet on May 25th at 9:00pm on WSKG TV.
Catch Season 5 of Doc Martin on WSKG TV starting May 12th at 9:00pm. The story picks up after the birth of Martin and Louisa's son. Will Martin return to his post as Portwenn's GP? Will fatherhood help the Doc to mellow?
