“One of the most spectacular journeys in recent American music.” – The New York Times
“One of the most talented and imaginative artists working in music — any music — today.” – The Los Angeles Times
“Brilliantly original.” – The Seattle Times
“The audience was on its feet . . . They were moved by Mr. O’Connor’s journey without maps, cheering for the only musician today who can reach so deeply first into the refined, then the vernacular, giving his listeners a complex, sophisticated piece of early-21st-century classical music and then knocking them dead with the brown-dirt whine of a Texas fiddle.” – The New York Times
With three Grammy wins, seven CMA Awards, and multiple national fiddle, guitar, and mandolin champion titles, Mark O’Connor’s music and career truly defies categories.
In his new partnership with Skyline Artists, Mark has created the “Mark O’Connor Duo” for performing arts centers. The concert features both his originals and classics, and it highlights his violin, guitar, mandolin and vocals along with his wife, Grammy-winning Maggie O’Connor.
Going back several decades, he’s been a member of legendary ensembles the David Grisman Quintet, The Dregs, and Strength In Numbers with Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, and Edgar Meyer. Now his Mark O’Connor Duo with his wife and violinist Maggie O’Connor surveys his entire career along with new material. Their incredible musical chemistry led to yet another Grammy award, this time for Best Bluegrass Album “Coming Home.”
