Appalachian music is the music of the region of Appalachia in the Eastern United States. It is derived from various European and African influences, including English ballads, Irish and Scottish traditional music (especially fiddle music), hymns, and African-American blues.

My new album features 11 Christmas tracks, as well as several Appalachian-themed songs about a beloved hunting dog, passing a fiddle down through the generations, and offering a new version of "Appalachia Waltz" itself with classical guitarist Sharon Isbin, one of my most well-known pieces. Classical violinist and folk fiddler Mark O'Connor was born in Seattle but his heart is in the hills and hollows of Appalachia the album's best moments are the earthy "Cherry Tree Carol" and Mr. O'Connor's own "Appalachia Waltz. On "Sleigh Ride," he overdubs all 10 instruments.
The Appalachian Mountains, often called the Appalachians, are a system of mountains in eastern North America. The Appalachians first formed roughly 480 million years ago during the Ordovician Period. They once reached elevations similar to those of the Alps and the Rocky Mountains before experiencing natural erosion. The Appalachian chain is a barrier to east–west travel, as it forms a series of alternating ridgelines and valleys oriented in opposition to most highways and railroads running east–west.

An Appalachian Christmas has been added to your Cart. Equally talented as a Classical violinist and folk fiddler, Mark O'Connor was born in Seattle but his heart is in the hills and hollows of Appalachia. On this largely self-produced CD, there are blue-grass instrumentals and cosmopolitan crooners-all paying their mountain dues. Vocal tracks include Jane Monheit on ''Winter Wonderland,'' Renee Fleming on ''Amazing Grace'' and James Taylor on ''Ol' Blue . When I purchased this, I envisioned Christmas songs done in an Appalachian style. And that is surely what you get on 10 of the 16 cuts provided and done well. But the six other songs are either NOT Appalachian style AND Christmas songs together.
