Celebrate history with the Carter Family Memorial Music Festival
The annual festival is held to honor the historic Bristol Sessions of 1927 by the Victor Talking Machine Company. Ninety one years ago, A.P., Sara, and Maybelle Carter made an historic trip from their humble homes at the foot of Clinch Mountain to Bristol, Tennessee – a trip that would take 30 to 40 minutes today, took them most of a day. The weather was extremely hot, Maybelle was eight months pregnant, Sara was nursing baby Joe, and the car – a Packard borrowed from Ezra (A.P.’s younger brother and husband to Maybelle who was A.P.’s wife Sara’s first cousin) was jam packed full of instruments and family members.
