Mark O’Connor, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?

“Well, my mom really started buying me albums before I really knew to buy albums, so that’s kind of a gray area for me.

I remember that my first albums were classical. But when I was eight or nine years old, I discovered Doug Kershaw and Johnny Cash, and my mom started buying their albums for me.

We both liked those two artists quite a lot.”

Genre-smashing violinist Mark O’Connor teams up with classical guitarist Sharon Isbin in concert at The Egg in Albany at 3pm Sunday.
