myrtle Question: Ashokan Farewell (95* d) RE: Question: Ashokan Farewell 19 Feb 98


Helen, Here's a direct quote from the album (yes, LP) cover I have of "Ashoken Farewell". The LP is titled "Waltz Of The Wind" and recorded by the group Fiddle Fever(includes Jay Ungar) in 1984 on Flying Fish Records. Ashoken Farewell: "Several of our band members have taught at Fiddle and Dance Workshop's music and dance weeks at Ashoken. Ashoken is a camp in New York's Catskill Mountains........Overcome with emotion shortly after the '82 season, Jay wrote this lament. He began playing it during an off moment in the studio. The rest of the band joined in, Evan(Strover)wrote string parts and an arrangement was born". And by the way, this tune is heard during the Ken Burns Civil War series that was Public TV a few years back.
