Celebrating the release of their new album Coming Home (slated for release in August), America’s foremost fiddle virtuoso and multi-talented instrumentalist Mark O’Connor will be joined on stage by his wife Maggie (violin) and son Forrest (mandolin) along with Kate Lee (violin), Joe Smart (guitar) and Geoff Saunders (bass, banjo).

Red Dog Run will open the show with their unique brand of old-time improvisational American music featuring clawhammer banjo phenom Richie Stearns (of the Horseflies), fiddler Rosie Newton and former members of Donna the Buffalo – Jim Miller and Jed Greenberg on guitar and bass respectively.

Tickets to the concert are $34 and are currently available exclusively to members of The Egg. Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 11am on Friday (July 29).
