Cannot Go Wrong

Been a fan for many years and always found Mr. O'Conner to be one of the best all-around musicians playing today. I also appreciate the fact that he holds string camps all over the country to pass along his knowledge of old time and bluegrass music to a younger generation. This new album with his wife, son, and future daughter-in- law is delightful and really more than just a bluegrass album. There is lots of old time and traditional country music on this album as well. Just saw the group live at Down Home in Johnson City TN and was amazed what a tight perfectly matched group they were. Mark is fabulous to watch perform live and every musician on the stage played up to his level. Listening to three fiddles perfectly complement each other is not to be missed. Cannot go wrong with this album and if you can be sure to catch them live.

Coming Home

The long awaited album is here, and there is absolutely no disappointment. I've listened to it several times and can't seem to get enough of the rich arrangements! Each time I listen, it's like peeling back another layer as I hear something I didn't catch the time before. No matter what your favored genre of music may be, if you love music, there is no denying the beauty to be found here. With toe-tapping fiddle tunes, love ballads, soul foul blues, old country, syncopated ragtime, and classical sounding arrangements, they have it covered. I also love that, although this album features the songwriting and singing of Kate and Forrest as well as the fiddle playing of Mark, it in no way shuns the other talented musicians and vocalists. Listen for some explosive solos throughout. My only complaint would be that I want more. I look forward to many more albums from this band, and will wear out my copy of Coming Home in the meantime!

Bluegrass At Its Best

I have always been a fan of Mark O'Connor, and his latest album does not disappoint. The group of talented musicians that make up the O'Connor Band, are some of the best I have ever heard. Their vocals are crisp and clear, and the instrumentals really showcase how talented these amazing musicians are. Their version of Jerusalem Ridge (my favorite bluegrass song) is definitely bluegrass as it was meant to be played. This is one of the best bluegrass albums to be released in recent years.
