“An absolute delight” (American Songwriter)
All Classical Portland presents Grammy-winning violinist Mark O’Connor as part of his third annual An Appalachian Christmas tour. The performance features “elegant” (New York Times) interpretations of Christmas classics found on O’Connor’s celebrated album of the same name, which reached the top 20 on three Billboard charts: Bluegrass Albums, Crossover Albums, and Classical Albums.
O’Connor’s “dazzling skill” (Spartanburg Herald-Journal) as both a musician and composer will be further enhanced in this program by several renowned instrumentalists and singers: Cia Cherryholmes from the bluegrass band “Cherryholmes;” fiddler and vocalist Carrie Rodriguez; guitarist Joe Smart; bassist Michael Rinne; and O’Connor’s son Forrest on mandolin and vocals.
