FOOD & MUSIC AT THE CARTER FAMILY FOLD

Flo Wolfe and Rita Forrester, granddaughters of A. P. and Sara Carter, at the Carter Family Fold.

Our Mountain Empire Field Trip ended with in evening at the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, VA. We listened to the Larkin Family Band, ate our fill of cornbread and soup beans, and honored the subjects of our oral history project on the Fold with our Tabasco Guardian of the Tradition awards. Go here to read the interviews with members and friends of the Carter Family that are part of our latest documentary project.
