Keeping it in the family with The O'Connor Band / WFAE Radio

Bookmark and Share

Grammy award winning violinist and composer Mark O'Connor has played with the likes of Dolly Parton, James Taylor, and Paul Simon, and he's never met a genre of music he didn't like. He even invented his own method for teaching the violin, named the O'Connor Method which focuses on teaching traditional Americana music. And he's currently the Charlotte Symphony's artist in residence. But in his latest project, he's sharing the spotlight with his band mates… three of whom are his family members. WFAE's Sarah Delia stopped by the O'Connor's new home in Charlotte to talk about what it's like to be in a family band.
