An Appalachian Christmas Show Time: 7:30 PM
Tuesday, Dec 10, 2013 7:30 PM
Multiple Grammy Award-winning violinist Mark O'Connor surrounds himself with an all-star band-Carrie Rodriguez, Cia Cherryholmes Adkisson, Forrest O'Connor, Kyle Kegerreis, and Joe Smart- for an unforgettable evening.
Mark O'Connor says, "Appalachia is the original melting pot of our country featuring more diverse styles of American music than just about anywhere. This theme makes for what is a trilogy of my "Appalachia" recordings now; 'Appalachia Waltz,' 'Appalachian Journey' and 'An Appalachian Christmas.' My new album features 11 Christmas tracks, as well as several Appalachian-themed songs about a beloved hunting dog, passing a fiddle down through the generations, and offering a new version of "Appalachia Waltz" itself with classical guitarist Sharon Isbin, one of my most well-known pieces. . . 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 spirit of 'An Appalachian Christmas.'"
