Description

There surely can never have been an act like the Carter Family which laid the foundations of a musical genre, and then adhered completely to their initial style over the subsequent decades. A.P.Carter fastidiously ignored the changes that were taking place in that genre, whilst the world went through the Depression and then a World War. He personally survived a divorce, the re-marriage of his wife and managed to keep the group going on the straight and narrow through all these traumatic events. From their ground breaking recordings in 1927, where they laid the foundations for modern country music, their impact on country music was enormous and they defined close harmony singing for decades to come. Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Louvin Brothers, Mac Wiseman, Johnny Cash, Stonewall Jackson, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band are just a handful of the artists who owe a major debt to the music of the Carter Family. The Carter Family were elected to the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 1970, and the citation ends with the words, They are regarded by many as the epitome of Country Greatness and originators of a much copied-style.
