Ashokan Farewell


This is grandma’s favorite song, and just about everyone else’s too. You’ll recognize this from Ken Burns’ Civil War Documentary on PBS. It’s technically a Scottish lament.

My brother and I grew up playing this song all the time, I would play the melody and Jeff would play the harmony part. I’m thinking now I should get him to do a video with me so I can share it with you, I’ll work on that the next time we’re together. Thanks for sharing.
