"American traditional folk music group, formed in 1927. Their music was hugely influential for bluegrass, country, folk, and rock musicians. The original group split up when A.P. Carter and Sara Carter left in 1944, but Maybelle Carter and her daughters continued performing as The Carter Sisters. In the 1960's,The Carter Sisters reclaimed the name The Carter Family.
" The Carter Family, a family vocal group from Appalachian Virginia, were the most impactful discovery of talent scout Ralph Peer and the first vocal group to become country music stars. Apart from the beautiful harmonies that can only come from kin, Mother Maybelle Carter pioneered “scratch” style guitar picking, a clever synthesis of autoharp, banjo and guitar picking, and for years served as a matriarchal figure in the Grand Ole Opry."
Between 1927, and their disbanding in 1943, the Original Carter Family recorded over three hundred songs. A.P. Carter, his wife Sara Carter, and Sara's first cousin Maybelle Carter were the first country band to be inducted as Members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. These are recently discovered recordings between Sara and Maybelle from the '60s. John Carter Cash has added 4 more generations of the Carter family to these recordings. This is The Carter Family Across Generations.
