Woodsongs: Mark O’Connor, Lyric Theatre
May 16, 2016 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm
The O’Connor Band featuring Mark O’Connor is at the Lyric Theatre on Monday, May 16 at 6:45 for the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour.
“THE O’CONNOR BAND featuring MARK O’CONNOR isn’t your typical family band. Mark’s 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.”
