This is a country classic usually played on the fiddle, but the song is also well suited to the accordion. Here it’s played in the key of ”C” modulating to the key of ”F” at the bridge.
This is for all my friends in Bradenton Fl, that I have the pleasure of jamming with. I really miss you guys in the off season
This is for everyone that thinks the accordion is mainly for polkas. Who would have thought ? Go figure.
Thanks for watching
This is a beautiful Gospel tune. It is indeed a pleasure to be able to play this and have it on here.
“Ashokan Farewell“ /əˈʃoʊ.kænˌ/ is a piece of music composed by American folk musician Jay Ungar in 1982. For many years it served as a goodnight or farewell waltz at the annual Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps run by Ungar and his wife Molly Mason, who gave the tune its name, at the Ashokan Field Campus of SUNY New Paltz (now the Ashokan Center) in Upstate New York.
My friend Roger and I discovered we each knew this song. Enjoy.
