• about-appacoverHailed as “one of the most talented and imaginative artists working in music,” by the Los Angeles Times, Mark O’Connor has lived an extraordinary life as a musical artist. The multi-Grammy winning musician and composer, most known for his million-selling composition “Appalachia Waltz” has composed nine concertos and two symphonies as well as authoring a new violin method that tens of thousands of children are learning from. After 30 years Mark still remains the only person that has won the National Fiddle Championship, the National Guitar Flatpicking Championship, and the World Mandolin Championship. He has also voted “Musician of the Year” for six years in a row by the Country Music Awards Association.

    Growing up in the O’Connor musical household, Christmas time was a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols, fiddling, bluegrass, and other traditional American music…and that is the spiritmoconnor-2357-12 of “An Appalachian Christmas”. The number one album has been called “Glorious….heavenly” by The Associated Press, “Elegant” by the New York Times, and “an absolute delight” by¬†American Songwriter.com.
