It's a pretty incredible story: two young Mexican guitarists who started out playing thrash metal in their homeland left to settle in Ireland, and there made a name for themselves playing a distinctive brand of fast, highly rhythmic acoustic music inspired by classic rock and jazz fusion. Rodrigo & Gabriela light up the first hour of this week's program, as does another incredible virtuoso with a worldwide following, cellist Yo-Yo Ma. There's also a touch of Celtic music, a famous cinematic love theme, and two late 60's hits by a onetime protegee of Paul McCartney.
