Ashokan NY is easily located on the NY map, just a few miles east of Shokan.
Settled umpteen years before 1982. Supposedly it was named for an 'Indian chief.' There are several wineries nearby, so alcoholism rather than curry was a more likely cause of his demise.

RE: It is important to note that "The Ashoka" is (or was) a very famous Indian curry house in Glasgow. My own experience of this dates back to the years 1986/7. It was well known that it was the best curry house in Glasgow (and therefore the best curry house in the world).

It seems that this constitutes incontrovertable proof that the tune is indeed based on a Scottish air. It is of little surprise that the "Farewell to the Ashoka" (or "The Ashokan Farewell") is a lament.

This discussion of the origins of 'Ashokan Farewell' is interesting. I agree with John in Brisbane that the melody sometimes resembles 'Give Me Your Hand'. However, even more so, the melodic structure is closely similar to the opening bars of 'Sheebeg, Sheemore'. Change the notes a bit and the tunes are the same. I noticed this when I was learning all 3 tunes on the fiddle.

This in no way detracts from Ungar's composition, without which we would not have this beautiful, haunting melody. Jay likely subconsciously borrowed the melodies from the other 2 tunes since these are in his repertoire and both appear (along with Ashokan) on his great fiddle video "The Fiddler's Guide to Waltzes, Aires, and Haunting Melodies". Mr. Ungar is an excellent traditional fiddler and Ashokan Farewell is one of my favorites.

As a Civil War Reenactor and Field Musician, I had to check this out.

We still get requests for it at Reenactments and encampments.

I don't know, nor do I care as to Mr. UNGAR's religious tradition or heritage, and "ashoken" is about the only work of his that I'm familiar with.

But in regards to some of the recent discussion and somewhat aside, some years ago I was inspired to write a song titled "Night in Jerusalem" that sounds every bit like a Jewish person should have written it...

But I'm a Yankee Baptist. Go figure, eh?

"In my dreams the golden spires of your Temple meet the sun;
In your streets; the children dancing;
Hear them sing, and laugh, and run;
Your sweet flowers soothe my spirit
Though it's not time to come home -
Let me spend the night, Dear Lord...
In Jerusalem!"

(Chorus)

I went to the Ashokan Camp last summer - its worth checking out on the website - just search for Ashokan Farwell - and up it pops. There is no doubt that Jay Ungar wrote the tune. It is used as the farewell dance at the end of each of the three summer camps. Jay wrote it at the end of one summer - after the last camp when he was devastated and exhausted at the end of it all. It was like an Auld Lang Syne - what the scottish sing at the new year.

Having been entrenched in folk music genre for the whole summer of course the tune shows the influence of it all.

I know that Jay and Molly are rather fond of food and would dearly love to visit the various Ashoka establishments that have been suggested throughout the northern hemisphere.

If memory serves - there was some needless reference to Jay Ungar being jewish in one of the other threads, so perhaps the sensitivity or assumption that the humourously intended comment/pun was an intentional reference to this - was understandable? As as all of us are in agreement that one's religion, race or creed has nothing to do with musical talent, perhaps we can finally lay this issue to rest and all move on, a little wiser and a little more tolerant?

As the record is slipping down the chart, perhaps we do not have to worry about it becoming a big hit? Thanks for the deatails.

Firstly, I must put the good Rabbi's fears to sleep. I am British, and am mercifully free (I think!) of most racial prejudice, least of all anti-semiticism. I was most careless in using the word 'jew' in my post, and it is only in such casual ways one finds that what one says in innocense is received with hurt (a favourite saying of mine used to be calling a spade a spade, until it was pointed out that I wasn't referring to a garden implement). My ignorance on this occasion was that Jay Ungar is Jewish. I am a fan of his work, and a performer of his music. I have seen him performing with Aly Bain on the excellent TV program the Transatlantic Sessions, and enjoyed his contribution immensely. Call me naive, but I just didn't realise he is Jewish, as that isn't one of the criteria on my scorecard. I heard and saw an American, and a great one at that. I think by now, unless you are blind to my innocence, that you would realise that I wouldn't deliberately make the faut pas I did if I thought of the composer as a Jew and me having a problem about that.

However, sir, I find your tone rather suggestive of over-sensitivity, sniffing out prejuduce where it genuinely does not exist. I thank you for correcting my ignorance, but dismissing it with humour is more constructive than suggesting that there are darker forces at work.

Shambles, I did some digging about the Classic FM version, and it seems that it slipped from Number 6 in the 2003 chart to No 18 in the 2004 version. The details are:-

track title
The Ashokan Farewell
composer
Jay Ungar
soloist
N/A
conductor
Major J R Perkins
orchestra
Band of her Majesty's Royal Marines

And it isn't junior bandsmen stamping up and down parade grounds, it really is quite sensitive!

If you had to think about every message, muscle movement and subtle changes of balance that goes into every step - walking would appear so complicated a process that you may not even risk making the attempt?

Fine music was being made long before people thought in terms of octaves and keys. Technical examination of the notational structure of tunes or styles may sometimes be helpful - it may also lead some folk to think that the attempt is too difficult.

Ashokan Farewell is a fine tune because it sounds good to many ears, rather than how pretty (or complicated) the notes look when written down on paper.

My grandfather played several instruments in a 'brass band', finally settling on the tuba. he said it allowed him to get a seat on the tram - just drop it on someones foot, and when they stood up, sit.

AF takes 3 octaves on the piano accordion - you would really need a Low G whistle, and need to cross-finger or half hole the G# as it is a dominant part of the whole piece. The C natural on which the whole second part hangs needs to be clear.

It really is in the mode of D plagal.

I hope this is just another failure to communicate thing. I do think, as was said, that a typo happened. Otherwise the discussion makes no sense at all---other than to point out a military band version of Jay's song.

Long before there was a Watergate Scandal, I used to go down to the Watergate by the Potomac River in D.C., and twice a week there were glorious band concerts done by one or the other of the national military bands. They did things like "Sinple Gifts" and R. Vaughn-William's "English Folksong Suite" or various works by Aaron Copeland. These were rendered, to my ear at least as well as any performance by good symphony orchestras. (That was 1964.)

As a point of interest , if you want to play A. F. on Whistle in the original key (D) Without any Octave jumps you will need a G whistle and start on the A in the top octave . The melody runs through two octaves of G when played in D . If you hate people showing off as much as I do , PM me and we will discuss .

I orginally learned the arrangement in Acoustic Guitar in A and then discovered that it lays a lot better for fingerstyle guitar in Malagasy tuning, CGDGBE low to high, for me anyway. It's not hard to transpose off the AG version and all the additonal open string notes add resonance and make it easier to add fiddle-like embellishments. Frankie

Hello Hannah, I am very glad to hear you are involved with CW reenacting. It is encouraging to see young people getting involved with learning and teaching others about our heritage! What part of the country are you in and are you affiliated with a particular unit or group? I formed an artillery unit representing the 1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery, D Battery, U.S. and Rockbridge Light Artillery, Virginia, C.S.A. We have been in the hobby about 9 years now, my wife and two of my sons are also active. Music of the period is also of great interest to us. Click here to get to a wonderful site of Civil War era music. Many of the popular composers of the day are represented.

Perhaps one day our paths will cross at an event and I will have the privilege of hearing you play.

Right on Ole Bull!

Dear Hannah This song Ashokan Farewell at a Civil War Reenactment would be somewhat "farby" (reenactment vernacular for unauthentic/anachronistic). There is so much wonderful and neglected music from the 19th century I have to ask why people (like Burns) insist on grafting modern facsimiles and give the impression that it is "authentic." For those who count on research input from TV, Radio and weekend folk festival you can count also on general misrepresentation. Sadly, now, everyone misses out; on the true richness of our own heritage.

Maybe, but, as stated before, Ashokan, from the Algonquian Indian language, is a town and a reservoir, in the Catskill region of New York State. The song's author, Jay Ungar, lives there.
