Mark O'Connor and the Appalachia Waltz Trio - Violin/Fiddle, Viola and Cello

Mark O'Connor and the Appalachia Waltz Trio

A product of America's rich aural folk tradition, Mr. O'Connor's journey began at the feet of violin masters Texas fiddler Benny Thomasson and French jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli. Along the way, Mark O'Connor absorbed knowledge and influences from a multitude of musical styles and genres. Now, at age 44, he has melded and shaped these influences into a new American classical music. To join him in his new Appalachia Waltz Trio, Mark has recruited two superb young players. Mark's arrangements for this new ensemble are spirited three-voice conversations, whose textures and interweaving melodic lines fit together perfectly.
