Mark & Maggie O'ConnorThree of the four members of O’Connor Band— including American music legend Mark O’Connor—play fiddle, and the fourth plays mandolin. That’s a lot of high notes. But with the help of guitar and bass, The O’Connor Band delivers beautiful and thoughtful original vocal songs, classic covers, and sophisticated instrumentals with a fresh, powerful sound that calls on bluegrass, indie folk, and Americana.

 

Mark has collaborated with James Taylor, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Alison Krauss, Yo-Yo Ma, and Wynton Marsalis. In addition to having headlined numerous times at the major summer bluegrass festivals, including Telluride and Merlefest, Mark has performed his own violin concertos hundreds of times over the last 20 years, including with the Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and London Symphony Orchestras. Rounding out the quartet is Mark’s wife Maggie O’Connor (fiddle, vocals), his son Forrest O’Connor (mandolin, vocals), and Forrest’s partner Kate Lee (fiddle, vocals). Their repertoire is centered around some of Mark’s instrumentals and songs written by Forrest and Kate, the band’s lead singers, whose tight harmonies and lyrical honesty have earned praise from the likes of Krauss, Rosanne Cash, and Mary Gauthier. For an adventurous night of American string music, catch O’Connor Band at the Freight.
