About an Appalachian Christmas Concert Tour: 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.
The touring musicians with Mark O’Connor include his wife Maggie O’Connor, son Forrest O’Connor, daughter-in-law Kate Lee O’Connor, Joe Smart and Geoff Saunders of the newly Grammy-winning Mark O’Connor Band.
This is the 8th consecutive year for An Appalachian Christmas on tour. The ensemble has dynamic energy on stage that brings their individual expertise to holiday themes and classics in the most delightful and musically satisfying way!
