Steve and Ruth Smith

Artist: Steve and Ruth Smith ~ Title: Ashokan Farewell

Video Description: This is a tune that was used extensively in Ken Burn's documentary "The Civil War." That is why most folks think it is a Civil War era tune. However, it was written in 1982 by fiddler Jay Unger in the style of a Scottish lament. Ken Burns felt it had the "right feel" for his topic and those times. This tune was recorded by North Carolina Duo Steve and Ruth Smith on their "An Appalachian Aire" CD.
