THE O'CONNOR BAND with MARK O'CONNOR isn’t your typical family band. The
Band features one of the most iconic fiddlers in American history, Mark
O’Connor. His collaborations with James Taylor, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs,
Tony Rice, Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Alison Krauss, Yo-Yo Ma, Wynton Marsalis,
and many others have led to performances on the most visible concert
stages worldwide. In the O’Connor Band, Mark is joined by his wife Maggie
(fiddle, vocals), son Forrest (mandolin, vocals), and Forrest’s partner
Kate Lee (fiddle, vocals). Their repertoire is centered around some of
Mark’s greatest instrumentals as well as 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. Along with national flatpick guitar champion Joe Smart and
Eastman School of Music graduate and current University of Miami DMA
candidate Geoff Saunders, the O'Connor Band just recorded their debut
album for Concord/Rounder Records slated for release this summer.

WoodSongs Kid: Allie Hagan is a 17 year old fiddle champion from
Nicholasville, Kentucky. She recently taught 75 students in Kenya to play
the violin using the O’Connor Fiddle Method.
