Jay Unger and Molly Mason will perform at the Middleburgh Library on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 4 p.m.

He was a Bronx kid. She grew up in Washington State. He was raised on pop music of the 1940s and ’50s. She had a fondness for traditional fiddle music and ’30s and ’40s popular tunes.

He hung out in Greenwich Village coffeehouses and roamed North Carolina and Tennessee in search of traditional players. 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; the two married in 1991 — Jay Ungar and Molly Mason have become one of the most celebrated duos on the American acoustic music scene.

In 1984, Fiddle Fever band members Matt Glaser and Russ Barenberg were working with a young filmmaker on a documentary called “The Brooklyn Bridge.” They gave Ken Burns a copy of Fiddle Fever’s second LP, Waltz of the Wind, which included Jay’s “Ashokan Farewell.”

 Burns was so taken with the evocative and haunting melody, he used it in his next film, “Huey,” about Louisiana Governor Huey Long, and he wound up inviting Jay and Molly to provide music for many of his projects.

The high point to date of this long relationship was the selection of “Ashokan Farewell” as the main theme of Burns’ landmark PBS documentary, “The Civil War.”
