Ashokan Farewell

Ashokan Farewell.
A lovely piece of music that pulls at your heartstrings...

Written by Jay Ungar in 1982, at the end of a memorable gathering of fiddlers and dancers.
Ungar has called his composition "a Scottish lament written by a Jewish guy from the Bronx."

What's not to love?
