There is a stream that courses through American roots music. Its source is in the Appalachian foothills in a place called Maces Springs, Virginia. It was there that A.P. Carter, his wife Sara and his sister-in-law Maybelle began their careers as three of the earliest stars of country music. From their earliest days as Victor recording artists to their international success via the phenomenon of Border Radio, the Original Carter Family made their mark on the history of American recorded music.
"Quite simply, the greatest documentary about musicians I have ever seen. Informed historically and sociologically, it is also the ultimate hootenanny." - Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Wonderful …" - Jeff Baker, Oregonian
