The Back 40
Saturday March 23rd, 2019 with Gord Peeling
An exploration of the Carter Family musical canon and legacy.

Most of the Carter Family songs and covers come from the complete Victor recordings of 1927 to 1930. They influenced hillbilly, country, blues, bluegrass, skiffle and rock and roll and the legacy continues.
