Album Notes
Jay Ungar & Molly Mason achieved international acclaim when their performance of Jay's, "Ashokan Farewell," became the theme of Ken Burns' "The Civil War," on PBS. The soundtrack recording won a Grammy and Jay was nominated for an Emmy. "Ashokan Farewell" was originally inspired by Jay & Molly's Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps in New York's Catskill Mountains, which are still going strong today.

In concert, Jay and Molly take you on a musical journey spanning two centuries and two continents. In recent years they've to reached an ever wider audience through appearances on "Great Performances," "A Prairie Home Companion," their own public radio specials, and through their work on film soundtracks such as, "Brother's Keeper," "Legends of the Fall" and a host of Ken Burns' PBS documentaries.

jay ungar&molly mason civil war classics
this is truly a great album,jay and molly's voices
blend together so well,after listening to the album i could imagine the soldiers listening and singing these songs to pass the time and to help
them deal with all of the hardships of the war.
listening to "ashokan farewell" always makes me
think of gettysburg. great job and keep on recording albums of this nature.

I Loved This CD
Thanks Jay and Molly for preserving the music and educating all of us as to the importance of how things were done back when! Our own fiddle player played a great rendition of your own ASHOKAN FAREWELL...... Great song! God Bless you both,
Joe Bonsall / Oak Ridge Boys

Beautiful Live Music......I thought I was there at the concert....
Very well done CD. Jay & Molly do an excellent job of presenting this collection of most beautiful tunes. For just a minute, you might think you were in 1800 Richmond, listening to a parlor music performance. Did Great-granddad here it like this? I'll bet he did. Outstanding fiddling and accompaniment! Excellent liner notes................I wish I hadn't missed the concert!

The music is awesome, good harmony and mix of music. Even gives some background info. for each piece. We got the MP3 format of this CD and will put it over to the Ipod. The sound quality is great and it was fun to get the CD instantly with no shipping cost.
