37th Carter Family Memorial Festival August 5th

The Carter FamilyHiltons, VA -- In the early 1970s, the only place you heard old time or bluegrass music in southwest Virginia was at a festival. With the exception of a monument on State Street in Bristol, Tennessee, there was no area recognition of our region's rich musical heritage. So in 1974, Janette Carter decided to present a festival dedicated to her father, A.P. Carter. Before he died in November, 1960, he asked his daughter to do all she could to see that the Carter Family's music was never forgotten. She told him Daddy I will try. She did just that, and the Carter Family Memorial Music Center now stands as a tribute to the love and devotion she felt for her father and the music he created. The stage for that first festival was the flatbed of an 18-wheel truck on loan from the National Guard. Sara Carter came from California, and Maybelle Carter came from her home in Nashville. Very small by today's standards, that first festival was truly a labor of love.
