On stage, Mason and Ungar complement each other like a finely crafted fiddle and bow. Together they weave a rich postmodern musical magic carpet on which listeners may vicariously glide back in time and experience first-hand the sonorous riches of traditional music.
-David S. Rotenstein, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Jay Ungar and Molly Mason play music from the heart which reminds us of the best in all of us.
-Ken Burns, producer of PBS’ “The Civil War”
Jay and Molly make music that is simple and overwhelming . . . joyful and full of feeling . . . an apotheosis of American traditional music.
-Garrison Keillor, host and creator of
“A Prairie Home Companion”
Jay Ungar . . . is almost without peer as a composer of fiddle tunes. [He is] blessed with that rare knack for making his melodies move in ways that stir the listener’s longings.
-Geoffrey Himes, editorial review for Amazon.com
As composers, virtuosi and folklorists, this duo light up the concert stage and are a sure-fire hit for all music loving audiences.
-David Amram, noted American composer,
folk singer and jazz musician
