The Carter Family Family Show

A.P. Carter. Maybelle Carter. Sara Carter. The original family of country music. In the 1920s and 30s, audiences across the country huddled around the radio to listen to classic harmonies of well-loved songs such as “I’m Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes,” “Will the Circle be Unbroken,” “Wildwood Flower” being broadcast from a Mexican radio station just across the border. The songs they sang only hinted at the romantic travails and musical adventures that the singers lived. The Neo-Futurists present three solo pieces inspired by the lives of these musical pioneers.

Written & performed by: Emmy Bean, Joe Dempsey and Chloe Johnston
