New Season at the Buckman Performing and Fine Arts Center

The new season at the Buckman Performing and Fine Arts Center at St. Mary's continues Friday, September 22 with "An Evening with Mark and Maggie O'Connor." Multiple Grammy, CMA and instrumental championship winner Mark O'Connor is joined by his wife, Grammy winning singer and fiddler Maggie for an evening of their duo music.

Darel Snodgrass talks with Mark O'Connor about the couple's new works, surviving the pandemic, and his renaissance on guitar and mandolin.

I began piano lessons at age 6, trumpet at age 9, and began teaching myself the guitar at 10. My electronics knowledge comes from my father, who had the RCA television and stereo shop in my hometown of Pocahontas, Arkansas for nearly 20 years. My dad is still fixing televisions at age 79.
