Grammy winner Mark O’Connor blends American fiddling with French jazz into a new American classical music. An Appalachian Christmas is a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols, fiddling, bluegrass and other traditional American music.
 

A cultural diplomat and author of the O’Connor Method, his score “Fiddle Concerto” has become the most-performed modern violin concerto composed in the last 50 years.

The Center for the Arts Presents Mark O’Connor Band, An Appalachian Christmas | December 14, 2019
 
His new band is the product of Mark O’Connor’s imagination – one that has served him well over the course of his four-decade professional career. Their very first performance took place at the legendary Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield, Kansas in 2015, the same event where Mark won national competitions on three instruments as a young teenager. In 2017 – less than a year and a half later – the new band took home the GRAMMY Award for Best Bluegrass Album for their debut recording, Coming Home.
 
An Appalachian Christmas is a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols, fiddling, bluegrass and other traditional American music. O’Connor says, “Appalachia is the original melting pot of our country featuring more diverse styles of American music than just about anywhere.”
