Molly Mason


Molly Mason grew up in Washington State. She had a fondness for traditional fiddle music and '30s and '40s popular tunes. She played clubs and colleges on the West Coast and took a liking to the jazzy sound of the Swing Era. Since joining forces both artistically and romantically with Jay Ungar, Molly Mason and Ungar have become one of the most celebrated duos on the American acoustic music scene. The early '80s also saw the beginning of Jay's Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps, a world-renowned destination for enthusiasts of American music and dance traditions. Several years later, Mason became a full partner in designing and running these programs, which are still going strong. On radio and television, Jay and Molly have appeared on *CBS Good Morning, The Rosie O'Donnel Show, All Things Considered, A Prairie Home Companion*, and the BBC's "Transatlantic Sessions." They continue to broadcast their own live-performance radio show, "Dancing on the Air," and they have no shortage of future projects.
