Fiddler Jay Ungar and guitarist Molly Mason’s wholesome and heartfelt approach to folk comprises a wide range of traditional American musical styles, including Cajun, Appalachian, Celtic, Country and Swing. As founders and directors of the Fiddle and Dance Workshop at Ashokan in the Catskill Mountains, the pair delight in the emotional, social and community facets of music. "As composers, virtuosi and folklorists, this duo light up the concert stage and are a sure-fire hit for all music-loving audiences," raves fellow folk musician David Amram. The pair performed Ungar’s composition Ashokan Farewell on the Grammy winning soundtrack to Ken Burns’ documentary The Civil War and have released three albums since 1997. Regular guests on NPR's Prairie Home Companion, Ungar and Mason have their own radio show, Dancing on the Air, on Northeast Public Radio out of Albany, New York.
