Does anyone know what this haunting music is, played here and there through the program and over the credits? I couldn't catch the names but thought I momentarily saw Jay Unger. Thanks.

Sheila

I assumed that SOME was Jay Ungar and did not catch the credits either, but we noticed aurally that one frequent theme was the hymn tune This is My Father's World.

Mggie's Music sent me a note to watch out for Al Pettaway and Amy White's music on the National Parks series. The many music credits went by so fast on my small screen I couldn't pick them out. The music on the first two installments is magnificent.

Gounod's Funeral March of a Marionette would have been more appropriate as the Parks have since Reagan been suffering from massive budget cuts, deferred maintenence, understaffing, and overuse. They're in terrible shape across the board & getting worse daily.

Old member, occasional lurker. Saw this thread and suddenly had something to contribute.

The music I recongized, from the first installment, was Al Petteway (from his CD "Caledon Wood," I believe), and Peter Ostroushko. Both great talents, and very fitting choices.

Jay Ungar, Jacqueline Schwab and Bobby Horton are all involved

Knowing Ken Burns, there's no way he would make this sort of a documentary and not document the various parts of it. Here's his detailed description of the music. And since it is PBS, it of course comes with an opportunity to buy the soundtrack.

Hmmm...I haven't watched all of these, yet, but I could've sworn I heard Jerry Douglass on dobro during one of them, but I don't see him listed. Thanks for the link.

Thank you, Whistle Stop. An Amazon sample of "Caledon Wood" suggests "Sligo Creek" was the music I remembered. Thanks for introducing me to a beautiful artist whose bio states he often plays on PBS programs.

Hi--a friend wrote me about this thread, so I'm jumping in, even tho I can't answer the initial Q, haven't not yet seen the documentary. My piano playing is heard throughout the documentary, as it is through a dozen or so of Ken's other documentaries (Civil War, Baseball, Mark Twain, ...). Glad to hear it has connected with you all!

Jacqueline notes, above, that she does not know exactly which tune is being referred to by the original questioner. However, her recent e-mail newsletter does comment on some of the music she recorded, with others, for that series. Maybe one of these is the one you're looking for??

From Jacqueline Schwab's e-mail newsletter:
"...Ken Burn's new documentary "The National Parks: America's Best Idea,"...
From the musical side of things, you'll hear Kathy
Talvitie's evocative "Red Star Line" and other tunes I recorded with
Jay Ungar, Molly Mason and Matt Glaser, as well as the Gaelic air
"Robaidh dona gorach" (from my "Celtic Dialogue" CD with fiddler
Laura Risk) and the Scottish reel "Keep It Up" (from the demo by New
Rigged Ship, my duo with cellist Reinmar Seidler), and also hear a track
from a CD by tunesmith Larry Unger."

Well, I guess it would have been more helpful, had I actually read every part of this thread. The mystery music WAS identified, several letters ago. Oh well. I'll do better next time!!
