Combining traditional Christmas songs with an Appalachian style, Grammy-winning violinist Mark O’Connor is joined by some friends to bring the spirit of an authentic Appalachian Christmas to Northwest Arkansas.
Hailed as “one of the most talented and imaginative artists working in music” by the Los Angeles Times, O’Connor presents a holiday show that features a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols, fiddling, bluegrass and other traditional American music. An Appalachian Christmas is a show with some of O’Connor’s favorite musicians as well as beloved songs from the country, bluegrass, pop, classical and jazz genres.
