Jay Ungar and Molly Mason
March 6 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$25 – $30
If you were one of the many who watched when Ken Burns’ The Civil War hit the airwaves, you are familiar with Jay’s haunting composition Ashokan Farewell — the musical hallmark of the PBS series. The soundtrack won a Grammy and Ashokan Farewell was nominated for an Emmy. Jay & Molly are masters of music and storytelling who generously share their lives and their music with audiences – there are so many moments and strands to savor in the course of the evening! Jay’s fiddling is brimming with playfulness, drama, soulfulness and technical verve, as he explores the many musical styles and idioms that he has internalized and made his own. Molly’s total mastery and inventiveness on piano and guitar is always spot-on, as she supports the tunes and follows the flow of the melody. Her rich and expressive vocals along with the resonant strains of Jay’s violin, reveal the deep emotions that flow in the duo’s veins. Tickets are $30 pre-show or $35 at the door.
