Format: Audio CD
Harvest Home opens with a deceptively simple piece composed by Molly Mason. The sound is cool, clear and soothing, like the trickling of a stream. Jay Ungar is on fiddle and Molly Mason plays acoustic guitar and sings. Somehow, the world seems less crazy than it did just a minute ago. Molly drives home the point in her lyrics. "Each seed holds a perfect plan, in harmony with earth and man."
The first track is just a portal to a bountiful land where the trees grow tall and roots go deep. Harvest Home is filled with wonderful music and musicians -- fourteen tracks, 59.6 minutes: The Farmer's Set, Prairie Spring, Haymakers's Hoedown, Solstice Hymn, The Harvest Home Suite performed with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra and so much more. One of my favorites is La Chanson De Mardi Gras, a delectable Cajun piece featuring Christine Balfa on vocals and triangle. Christine Balfa's thin and sexy voice and oh that triangle she plays just drive me crazy.
But really, to focus on any one track in this CD is not fair. I have listened to Harvest Home now many times and always play it through from beginning to end. It is an experience that I look forward to and seem to enjoy more every time I play the CD.
I also treasure my other CDs by Ungar and Mason. If you buy Harvest Home and then like me go begging for more, try The Lovers' Waltz. You won't be disappointed with that one either.

In the 6 months since Harvest Home was released I have found that I now love it more than ever. It's the kind of CD that will appear on my playlist for many years, with its timeless quality that expands several musical boundaries. The deceptively simple and deeply moving Solstice Hymn and Thanksgiving Waltz are my highlights, straight from the heartland. The classical oriented Harvest Home Suite making up the last half of the CD changes the mood and requires real listening to capture all the nuances. Great stuff.
My only complaint - very minor! - is that Ashokan Farewell again appears on a Jay and Molly CD. It's a great tune but I think it deserves a rest for awhile. On the other hand, if someone has never heard it, this is about the best version they've ever done.
Anybody who loves fiddle music needs to have Harvest Home in their collection!

If you're a fan of acoustic music, Harvest Home is a very nice album to listen to. Ungar & Mason are very talented musicians and songwriters, and buddy good fiddle & guitar players are irresistable to listen to.
This album also contains a number of tracks, including the Harvest Home Suite, that combine Ungar and Mason with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. It's a nice blend.
If you've listened to the radio show Praire Home Companion or watched a Ken Burns film you've heard the work of these outstanding musicians. They're welcome inside my head any time!

I was first entranced by Jay Unger and Molly Mason's music when I first heard "Ashokan Farewell" and was even more moved when I purchased their "Lover's Waltz" album, which I played constantly. However, I must admit that "Harvest Home" is by far their best recording ever--if you love fine orchestration, then this one will move you to the core of your soul. Every person that I've had the pleasure of playing this album for, has immediately ordered a copy for themselves. I just can't say enough about how wonderful this album is. It's at the top of my Christmas list to give to friends and family alike.

The harvest home suite follows a time-honored tradition of composing an orchestral piece from folk melodies. The neat part here is that you get to hear each of the pieces played individually, then the suite composed of them.

I like most music, but usually listen to classical.To my wonderment, I heard this sweet gentle music on my local classical station. I didn't know if I was hearing classical or country. It was so beautiful and nostalgic that my eyes got weepy. Everytime I listen, I go to the fantasy of the good ole' days of security, comfort, honor and home and find peace.

Every cut on this CD is perfect, from start to finish!!
I can listen to it over and over, and never tire of it. The cuts range from soothing to uplifting. It has a pure, genuine quality that Unger and Mason translate wonderfully to the listening audience!!

This CD has two very distinct halves. The first is very folksy and the second is more orchestral. Upon first listening to it, I was a little uncertain since it wasn't quite what I was expecting. If however, you truly appreciate music, you might just discover what a work of art this album is as a whole. It has become one of my favorites. The opposite ends of the spectrum intermingle. In the orchestral you will hear the chords of the folk, and in the folk, you will hear the perfection of tone so often accredited to orchestral music. I must say, it makes my ears happy.
