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.[1]

The tune was used as the title theme of the 1990 PBS television miniseries The Civil War,[2] and appeared on the 1991 compilation album Songs of the Civil War.
