Wheeler Opera House – Sat Dec 16, 2023 7:30 PM
Grammy-winning composer and fiddler Mark O’Connor has created several arrangements of Christmas classics and fashions a wondrous mixture of both instrumental and vocal music in bluegrass and other American music genres. Concertgoers are treated to fresh takes on traditional songs with a few original compositions included.
His renditions are playful and joyous but can be strikingly earnest too. Mark O’Connor’s Christmas concerts feature himself performing on four instruments: fiddle, acoustic guitar, mandolin, and mandocello.
This performance will include his wife and fellow Grammy winner Maggie O’Connor on fiddle and vocals. Mark and Maggie have performed An Appalachian Christmas together for nearly 10 years. Much of the year they tour behind their latest recording of original Americana songs and classics, Life After Life. Together on stage, Mark and Maggie have a dynamic energy that brings their individual expertise to holiday themes and classics in the most delightful and musically satisfying way!
