Grammy-winning singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tim O’Brien performs with Jan Fabricius, sharing intimate and intriguing stories from his 2021 album He Walked On.

O’Brien says his most recent recording He Walked On is about “what you need to do to survive in America.” Covering work, racial issues, and modern technology, its eight originals and five covers offer an expansive portrayal of the nation. Historic and socially conscious themes weave their way through songs about people just trying to “keep it between the ditches.” Jan Fabricius is featured on vocals and mandolin.

O’Brien’s skills on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and banjo make him an in-demand session player in Nashville, and he has collaborated with artists such as Steve Earle, Mark Knopfler and Sturgill Simpson. Twice awarded both Song of the Year and Best Male Vocalist by International Bluegrass Music Association, he was inducted into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame in 2013.

“A master of American folk music, Irish music, Scottish music - it doesn’t matter. A fine songwriter and one of my favorite singers.” - Mark Knopfler
