A trio of extreme cellists has played on the roofs of England's cathedrals and while running a marathon. Now they're in the midst of a new challenge — for charity — walking coast to coast, offering mini-concerts for anybody who's around — be it a passerby or a grazing cow.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

A trio of extreme cello players have performed on the roofs of England's cathedrals and while running a marathon. Now they're in the midst of a new challenge, for charity: walking from England's coast to coast, offering mini-concerts for anybody who's around - be it a passerby or a grazing cow. The music will reflect the moment. When the cellists get to some of the most difficult terrain, they'll play "Climb Every Mountain" from "The Sound of Music."

It's MORNING EDITION.
