I didn’t think of AP Carter as a folklorist before. I also have to wonder with all the songs he brought to Americana he wasn’t richer from royalties.
I didn’t realize how much of a struggle the Carter family had. Cool documentary, great covers of all the classic songs. I may need to get some Old 97s records.
I have to say myself I don’t own a Carter Family CD. I definitely thought about it but I think I prefer covers.
And if course I love Johnny Cash.
One of the best things about America is our music. From rock to blues to gospel to Appalachian folk music which is a forerunner to country music. Makes me want to learn more on the guitar.
Good movie, so much incredible legacy. On Netflix.
