Women of Folk Sing-Along
Suzanne Fox will be presenting songs either written or sung by American women in the folk music genre. We may do a few traditional rounds as well. It will be an hour of joining our voices together in song!
Carter Family Sing-Along
The Carter Family is generally regarded as the First Family of American country music. They first recorded in 1927 for Victor Records in Bristol, TN, as part of what is considered to be the "Big Bang" of country music. Their recordings of songs such as "Wabash Cannonball", "Can the Circle Be Unbroken", "Wildwood Flower", "Keep On the Sunny Side" and "I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes" made these songs country standards. The original group consisted of three people from rural Southwest Virginia: A.P. Carter, his wife Sara Carter, and his sister-in-law Maybelle Carter. In addition, Sara and Maybelle were first cousins. Maybelle is considered to be the originator of country-style guitar playing, and Sara’s rich alto voice has been a template for many women country singers. A.P. traveled throughout the Eastern mountains, collecting folksongs which they recorded (and which, consequently, made A.P. quite a good living through copyrights and publishing rights).

There is nothing that nurtures a sense of community and well-being like singing well-loved songs together. Laurie Lewis will lead this joyous sing-along, aided by Leah Wollenberg and young guitarist and singer Daisy Kerr. The trick will be trying to figure out which songs, among the hundreds the Carter Family recorded, to feature. There are too many gems to choose from!
