Blue O'Connell's Homepage

My work in acoustic music is centered around expanding what people have come to think of as "folk" music. This passion for acoustic music began in the summer of 1976 when I saw a neighbor friend playing her guitar and singing a song she wrote. Before that time, I was a drummer...the rest you can read about in my biography. Since coming to Charlottesville in 1989, my involvment in music has taken many forms. I am an assistant folk music director at WTJU and I was one of the hosts for over 10 years for a radio show called Sunset Road. You can hear me these days, however, on the Eclectic Woman show on Thursday nights from 7-9pm. Other people know me as a singer and songwriter and I have one recording of my own compositions, Lines of Change. More recently, however, I have returned to studying classical guitar. By day, I work at the University of Virginia. I have a favorite links page that I am always updating for your amusement.
