Jay Ungar and Molly Mason achieved international acclaim when their performance of Jay’s composition, “Ashokan Farewell”, became the musical hallmark of Ken Burns: The Civil War on PBS. The soundtrack won a Grammy, and “Ashokan Farewell” was nominated for an Emmy. The piece was originally inspired by Jay & Molly’s Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps in New York’s Catskill Mountains, which are still going strong today. Jay and Molly are musicians of enormous talent who draw their repertoire and inspiration from a wide range of American musical styles: 19th-century classics, lively Appalachian, Cajun, Celtic fiddle tunes, and favorites from the golden age of country and swing, along with their own songs, fiddle tunes, and orchestral compositions.
