Can The Circle Be Unbroken - The Carter Family

Along with "Singing Brakeman" Jimmy Rodgers, The Carter Family created the millenial template US Country, Bluegrass and Folk forms. Building on the string band tradition their influence and legacy are immense; their enduring appeal facile and mysterious. Harmonies simple and haunting, immediate and distancing. Alchemical interplay of voice and guitar.

Some of the greatest US music ever recorded.
