If you love American acoustic music, don't miss Jay Ungar & Molly Mason. These extraordinary musicians won international acclaim after Ken Burns' The Civil War hit the airwaves. Their performance of Jay's haunting composition Ashokan Farewell — the musical hallmark of the PBS series — left a lasting impression on everyone who tuned in. The soundtrack won a Grammy and Ashokan Farewell was nominated for an Emmy.
Jay & Molly host the renowned Ashokan Music & Dance Camps for adults and families at The Ashokan Center, a 385 acre nature retreat in the Catskill Mountains. In 2006, they and a group of supporters created the Ashokan Foundation to save The Ashokan Center and to support the Center's hands-on environmental outdoor education and living history programs for schools, which serve thousands of children each year.
