Jay Ungar and Molly Mason Family Band


Event details

Music of the Civil War and Beyond

Recognizing 2011 as the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, Grammy Award-winners Jay Ungar & Molly Mason Family Band present a timeless program of American folk and traditional music. The ensemble is best known for Ungar’s deeply moving composition Ashokan Farewell, selected as the theme song for Ken Burns’ momentous 1990 PBS documentary series, The Civil War. At the Lied Center, the group’s concert will feature music related to the military conflict and civilian life and times as well as music from the late 19th and early 20th century, including the Civil War era and the birthplace of American popular music.
