A product of America’s rich aural folk tradition as well as classical music, Mark O’Connor’s creative journey began at the feet of a pair of musical giants. Growing up in the O’Connor musical household, Christmas time was a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols and traditional American music - and that is the spirit of Mark O’Connor’s critically acclaimed album, “An Appalachian Christmas.” In this eagerly anticipated live show, the Grammy-winning fiddler shares songs from, and inspired by, the hills and hollows of Appalachia.

Share a celebration hailed as “a model of intelligence, heart and soul” (Los Angeles Times).
