The music of Mark and Maggie O'Connor returns to Idaho

Mark and Maggie O'Connor

For nearly his whole life, Mark O'Connor has been playing music.

Except for Prince, he was the youngest artist to ever sign a recording contract with Warner Brothers and went on to win three Grammys and become a seven-time CMA musician of the year.

Now he makes music with his wife Maggie, who plays violin, and picked up a Grammy playing bluegrass with the O’Connor Band during COVID.

The dynamic duo will be visiting Idaho this month as they get ready to release their new album “Life After Life,” and they joined Idaho Matters for a chat.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
