Mark O'Connor & Friends: An Appalachian Christmas
Jabez S. Hardin Performing Arts Center /
7022 Evans Towne Center Blvd. /
Evans, GA 30809
O'Connor says, "Appalachia is the original melting pot
of our country featuring more diverse styles of American music than
just about anywhere. This theme makes for what is a trilogy of my
"Appalachia" recordings now; 'Appalachia Waltz,' 'Appalachian
Journey' and 'An Appalachian Christmas.' My new album features 11
Christmas tracks, as well as several Appalachian-themed songs
about a beloved hunting dog, passing a fiddle down through the
generations, and offering a new version of "Appalachia Waltz" itself
with classical guitarist Sharon Isbin, one of my most well-known
pieces. A few of my favorite Christmas centerpieces for the album
include Renee Fleming’s soprano embraced by a mountain orchestra
and fiddle solo, as well as the jazzy style of Jane Monheit with an all
acoustic string band. Growing up in the O'Connor musical household,
Christmas time was a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols, fiddling,
bluegrass and other traditional American music. And that is the spirit
of 'An Appalachian Christmas.'"
Doors open at 6pm.
Reserved Seats can be purchased online at www.augustaamusements.com, under the “Events” tab or by calling 706-726-0366. Tickets are $52.00 and $47.00.
