Renowned fiddler and composer Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, his musical partner and wife, have run the Ashokan Fiddle and Dance Camp in upstate New York for many years. Jay wrote "Ashokan Farewell" in 1982 at the camp season's end, to express the sense of loss he felt after the departure of the musical community. The melody’s sweet, haunting sadness proved to be a perfect match for Ken Burns's 1990 PBS series "The Civil War". Arranged for guitar by John Lehmann-Haupt.
