Afterglow!

July 18 - 18, 2024

Seven-time CMA Musician of The Year, the acclaimed Mark O’Connor Duo with Maggie O’Connor

have an uninterrupted musical collaboration since the day they met in 2014. As they were perfecting the finer points of Mark’s American Classical violin duos, it got so good that they decided to get married. The next stage of their musical journey turned into a larger family collaboration for which they each took home a Grammy for playing bluegrass in the O’Connor Band. Now they have turned yet another musical corner. With a year-and-a-half of isolation from touring during the world-wide pandemic, they dedicated their days and nights towards further musical growth together. The couple workshopped new songs during seventy weekly online concerts from home, Mondays with Mark and Maggie. What came out of this exploration is an Americana album project of mostly original vocal songs they sing together, other popular songs reimagined, and all of them supported by a small universe of acoustic instruments they brushed up on in the time off the road.
