Event Description

Americana duo Kate Lee & Forrest O’Connor have earned national recognition as co-lead singers and primary songwriters of the O’Connor Band, a bluegrass group they co-founded along with O’Connor’s father, seven-time CMA Award-winning violinist Mark O’Connor. They wrote the majority of the band’s debut album, Coming Home, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums Chart and won a GRAMMY Award in 2017.

Both independently and as part of the O’Connor Band, Lee and O’Connor have collaborated with Paul Simon, Zac Brown, Kenny Loggins, Clint Black, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Dan Tyminski, and many others. Their music has accumulated more than half a million streams on Spotify, and they have performed at the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, and Fenway Park, as well as some of the most prominent festivals and performing arts centers around the country.

The performance will also see the return of Chris Wilson. A native of New York, Chris continues to earn rave reviews internationally for his vocally driven songwriting and passionate live performances. His career brought him to Los Angeles for a brand new MTV show called “The Cut”. He became 1 of only 10 artists to win their way to the finals from a field of 160 competitors and over 10 thousand hopefuls from around the world. Chris went on to win MTV’s “Viewers Choice Award” for his performance in the finals. His songwriting serves his voice perfectly, with a blend of power and simplicity. Chris’ music is, simply put, honest and emotional.
