Americana duo Kate Lee & Forrest O’Connor of the Grammy Award-winning Mark O’Connor Band take the stage at Natalie’s for a very special evening of music. Over the last three years, the duo has earned national recognition as the lead singers and primary songwriters of the Mark O’Connor Band, which features O’Connor’s father, seven-time CMA Award-winning violinist Mark O’Connor. Lee and O’Connor wrote the majority of the band’s first album, "Coming Home," which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums Chart and won a Grammy Award in 2017. The group spent the past summer opening for the Zac Brown Band, including two appearances at Fenway Park.
After performing for three years with the O’Connor Band, they’re excited to focus again on their duo project with the help of a backing band featuring two-time national mandolin champion Isaac Eicher, Grammy Award-winning bassist (and Doctor of Music) Geoff Saunders and country vocalist Mallory Eagle.
