I KNOW Ashokan Farewell is contemporary. and was written by Jay Unger, for one season's final dance at his Fiddle and Dance Camp, in Ashokan, NY. I used to go to the camp, back when I could dance, before my knee turned sour on me. It's just that it is about the most beautiful, haunting fiddle tune that I can think of. So by all means, do play it-people love it!
