Maring, O'Connor at Iron Post tonight

URBANA — Folk and bluegrass musicians Wil Maring and Forrest O'Connor will perform at 7 tonight at The Iron Post, 120 S. Race St., U.

The cover charge is $6.

Maring has performed on the Grand Ole Opry stage and in Europe and Japan, winning accolades along the way for her songwriting skills.

Her songs are described as personal and introspective but they also draw from the lives of others. Her music crosses the boundaries of bluegrass, country and folk.

O'Connor appeared on Melissa Ferrick's album "The Truth Is," released last year, and is featured on several tracks on the Hillary Reynolds Band's upcoming album.

He has been a featured vocalist and mandolinist in his father (famed fiddle player) Mark O'Connor's 2012 and '13 nationwide Appalachian Christmas tour.
