Kasen Rumpf introduced my to Chris Thile in 2010 when he gave me the great cd, “Deciever”. In the year that followed I would continually find myself returning to that cd, and in the winter of 2011 I unknowingly found myself watching him open for Paul Simon. Once I figured out who was on stage I couldn’t contain my excitement, and practically made a scene. The same feeling returned when I stumbled across a compilation of classical and blue-grass artists who go by the name of The Goat Rodeo Sessions. They’ve only created two cds, but both are worthy of the price of admission.
