$47.50 $27.00

Drawing on the rich musical tradition of rural Appalachia, by 1930 the Carter family had become an American institution. Often called the “first family” of country music, the original Carter family consisted of A.P. Carter, his wife Sara and Sara’s cousin Maybelle. Maybelle’s daughter June Carter, would go on to become a star in her own right and famously marry Johnny Cash.

Maybelle Carter’s pioneering guitar style not only revolutionized American music, but she was also one of the first white musicians to use the guitar as a lead instrument. In February 1929 the Carter family returned to Camden, NJ for their third-ever recording session (for Victor) laying down 12 plus tracks of which 5 can be heard here. Their next recording session, also for Victor was in Atlanta Georgia in November of that same year (just a month after the stock market crash), where they recorded their classic “Wabash Cannonball”, among others.
