Jay Ungar & 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.
In recent years Jay and Molly have reached an ever widening audience through their 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.
In concert, Jay and Molly welcome audiences with their comfortable sense of fun and enjoyment as they take you on a musical journey spanning two centuries and two continents. Through their active touring schedule Jay and Molly continue to share their special brand of musical joy with delighted audiences across the country.
