Gerry O’Connor, one of the great fiddle players of his generation, grew up in the town of Dundalk, County Louth in a family of musicians, dancers and singers.

From an early age Gerry was involved Irish music and dance, winning numerous All Ireland titles between 1967 and 1973 in a range of formations including duet, trio and four Céili Band titles.

He has played and recorded with such highly regarded groups as Lá Lúgh (Eithne Ní Uallacháin, Sony Music) and Skylark (Len Graham, Gary O’Briain & Mairtin O’Connor). Gerry has toured and recorded with members of all the legendary groups including Planxty, Bothy Band, De Dannan, Boys of the Lough and Chieftains. His solo album “Journeyman” was counted in the top five Albums of the year 2004 by the Irish Times.

He is currently touring and has recorded 6 albums with much celebrated Irish-Canadian group The Irish Rovers.

Tonight, Gerry is performing with guitarist Don Penzien whose dexterous work on DADGAD-tuned guitar provides solid, driving rhythms to traditional tunes as well as perceptive and sensitive accompaniments to songs and airs. Don is a Michigan native with strong roots in Irish culture and an affinity for Irish traditional music.

He now resides in NC where he works as Professor at the Wake Forest School of Medicine.
