    Mark O'Connor has bridged two worlds of music; consequently, for those of us who appreciate both traditional and progressive bluegrass / Classical string movements expanding our moods or spirits, we well appreciate the "An Appalachian Christmas" concept of lofty melodic expression. Melody and the Christmas celebration take the same walk down a very pretty path, so discovering great creative talents, such as Mark O'Connor, and bringing that small joy to others is my small Christmas to everyone.

From "An Appalachian Christmas" Tour, the "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem", the Mark O'Connor Band, featuring Mark O'Connor, Maggie O'Connor, Kate Lee O'Connor and Forrest O'Connor is great benefit to expanding the cheer of our Christmas Season: Below.
