Critically acclaimed fiddler Mark O'Connor is known for his virtuoso performances, prolific compositions, and the Mark O'Connor Method, a string instrument technique for teachers and students. Mr. O'Connor has won two Grammy awards and collaborated with a range of accomplished artists, from Yo-Yo Ma to Alison Krauss.
