Whiteside Live: Mark Oconnor: An Appalachian Christmas
December 12, 7PM
Grammy-winning composer and fiddler Mark O’Connor has created several arrangements of Christmas classics and fashions a wondrous mixture of both instrumental and vocal music in bluegrass and other American music genres. Concertgoers are treated to fresh takes on traditional songs with a few original compositions included. His renditions are playful and joyous, but can be strikingly earnest too.
Mark O’Connor’s touring ensemble includes his wife Maggie O’Connor on fiddle and vocals and son Forrest O'Connor.
