More Information

Iconic, Grammy-winning American fiddler Mark O'Connor garners standing ovations at the Grand Ole Opry with shows unlike any other, blending crackling Americana with striking sophistication.

Inspired by the American Songbook, Mark and championship-fiddler wife, Maggie, deliver a treasure trove of duo music - spirited hoedowns, jigs, and soulful ballads - then share Mark's rare instruments and stories, to boot! Bring your fiddle questions to this rich connection to Appalachian musical lore.

With 45 feature album releases to date, Mark is well-known for his New Nashville Cats, Strength in Numbers, Heroes, Appalachia Waltz, Hot Swing Trio, The Fiddle Concerto, and An Appalachian Christmas, as well as his television show, American Music Shop, and revolutionary O'Connor Method for string education. He has won three Grammys and seven Country Music Association Awards; appeared on 450 albums; collaborated with the likes of Johnny Cash, Wynton Marsalis, John Williams, Dolly Parton, and Yo-Yo Ma; and performed everything from original violin concertos at Carnegie Hall to swing at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Presented in partnership with the Crooked Road
