The Winding StreamThe Carters, the Cashes and the course of country music, The Winding Stream tells the saga of the family at the heart of country music. With special guest, filmmaker Beth Harrington, plus a special musical appearance by Chuck Egner and Friends! 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.

The film tells the story through narrator–less interviews; this saga is punctuated with studio performances by celebrated roots music practitioners like Johnny and June Carter Cash, George Jones, Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson and others. The film’s goal is to illuminate the foundation–forming history of this multi–generational musical family. Country music would not be what is without them.

Tickets and performance at the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts 7409 Icicle Road, Leavenworth, Washington.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
