Jay Ungar and Molly Mason Concert in Shelburne Falls!



The Permaculture Place, Inc (At The Mill, 49 Conway Street, Shelburne Falls, MA 01370, Shelburne Falls MA)

We are so very fortunate to be hosting this exceptional musical duo!

Jay Ungar & Molly Mason achieved international acclaim when their performance of Jays 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 & Mollys Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps in New Yorks 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 styles19th-century classics, lively Appalachian, Cajun, and Celtic fiddle tunes, and favorites from the golden age of country and swingalong with their own songs, fiddle tunes, and orchestral compositions.

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 Brothers Keeper, Legends of the Fall, and a host of Ken Burns PBS documentaries. Theyve had the honor of performing at the White House for two sitting Presidents and continue to tour extensively delighting audiences across the country.

They can present a variety of themed concerts, including Fiddlers Holiday (a musical travelogue featuring an amazing array of fiddle music from many traditions), Ashokan Farewell: The Civil War and Beyond (a two-part concert featuring songs and traditional fiddle tunes popular long before the advent of records and radios), and Tenting Tonight: Music of the Civil War (a concert of lively dance tunes, sentimental ballads, and rousing marches heard in homes and front-line encampments during Americas Civil War), and many symphony programs.

”Jay Ungar and Molly Mason play music from the heart which reminds us of the best in all of us.”  -Ken Burns, producer of PBS' The Civil War
