Thread Name: The first song of the Carter Family
Subject: RE: The first song of the Carter Family
Well, Natilie appears speechless at the moment. I must add that while the songs mentioned in this thread smacked me right where it hurts the first time I heard them and continue to to this day, I don't think the introduction of guitar, autoharp and other stringed instruments has impoved folk music. I find myself increasingly impressed with the unacompanied voice.
