Hailing from Nashville, musicians Kate Lee Gurnow and Forrest O’Connor make up the contemporary folk band, Wisewater. With Gurnow on the fiddle and O’Connor playing the mandolin or guitar, the band appeared several times this year at the Grand Ole Opry and more recently played in Tuscaloosa at the Green Bar. 

O’Connor, the son of legendary fiddler Mark O’Connor, is the Tennessee State mandolin champion, and Gurnow has performed at the Country Music Awards and backed up artists such as Rod Stewart, Lady Antebellum and Sara Evans on violin. The duo are currently on tour across the East Coast.
