The Ashokan Center continues its salon-style Catskill Conversations series with “Ulster County & the Civil War,” featuring author and historian Rosemary Nichols and the famed musical duo Jay Ungar & Molly Mason. The conversation will explore the history of Ulster County Civil War regiments and their role in the Battle of Gettysburg and beyond. Well-known for their expert curation of American folk music, Jay and Molly’s music was featured in Ken Burns’ PBS series The Civil War.

The Sunday-afternoon series features interactive talks by noted experts from a variety of fields including natural science, the environment, music, art, history, sustainability, food and more. Each “Conversation” ends with snacks, beverages and a chance to chat with the presenters and attendees.
