An Evening with Jay Ungar & Molly Mason Family Band
Presented by Union Hall World Music & Dance Coffeehouse
February 12, 2011
What is it they say about the family that plays together? Well, even if they don't all live under the same roof, this family makes terrific music and has a rip-roarin' good time while they're at it. The Jay Ungar and Molly Mason Family Band features Jay, Molly, Jay's daughter Ruth Ungar Merenda and her husband Michael Merenda. With exceptional musicianship and a vast number of musical styles, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason are one of the most celebrated duos in American acoustic music. They achieved international acclaim in 1990 when Jay's composition Ashokan Farewell became the musical hallmark of Ken Burns' The Civil War on PBS. Four terrific musicians. Put them together and the sum really is greater than it's parts.. Double fiddles, sweet vocal harmonies and rhythmic energy abound as two generations collaborate to entertain you with music from the heart and soul of America. BYOB and enjoy the vibrant cafe with it's offerings of Lasagna Bolognese, gourmet pizza, BBQ Pulled Pork, Decadent Desserts, organic coffees and soft drinks. Handicap Accessible on the Church Street entrance side.
