Fiddler, composer and educator Mark O’Connor is hailed as “brilliantly original” (The Seattle Times) and “one of America’s most beloved and highly regarded violinists” (NPR’s Mountain Stage). He makes a welcome return to Spivey Hall leading the O’Connor Band in an engaging, dynamic show featuring compelling arrangements, virtuosic solos, and tight vocal harmonies. Introducing Mark’s family members: Atlanta native Maggie O’Connor, fiddle; Forrest O’Connor, mandolin and vocals; and Kate Lee, fiddle and vocals. Rounding out the band is National Flatpick Guitar Champion Joe Smart and double bassist/old-time banjoist Geoff Saunders.
