FOOD & MUSIC AT THE CARTER FAMILY FOLD

RITA FORRESTER - CARTER FAMILY FOLD from Amy C Evans on Vimeo.

In anticipation of this year's symposium, the theme of which is Music & Food, we'd like to reintroduce you to our oral history project that documents the music of the Carter Family, as well as the homemade food that flies out the concession window at the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, every weekend. The traditional Appalachian staples of soup beans and cornbread are at the top of the menu, but so is egg salad that’s made from Janette Carter's recipe and a menagerie of cakes that are baked by women in the community.

Go here to view the project in its entirety.
