Bluegrass fiddler Mark O'Connor Profiled in The New Yorker

Jessica Phillips  |  September 10, 2009

Bluegrass fiddler-turned-classical violinist Mark O'Connor was recently profiled in The New Yorker. Calling O'Connor's playing method a "rival to the Suzuki method, the profile captures the heart of O'Connor's musical style, and introduces readers to a soon-to-be-released DVD, O'Connor Violin Method. One of the first tunes he instructs in the video is Boil 'Em Cabbage Down.

O'Connor has won two Grammy Awards, and was named by the Country Music Association as "Musician of the Year," from 1991-1996.

See O'Connor discuss his playing method at The New Yorker.
