The Winding Stream: The Carters, the Cashes & the Course of Country Music

Wednesday, December 16 - Tuesday, December 22, 2015

THE WINDING STREAM is a story about the family at the heart of American roots music. Starting with the Original Carter Family —A.P., Sara and Maybelle—the film traces the trio’s early musical success, the transformation of the act into The Carter Sisters, June Carter’s marriage to legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of the present-day Carter family to keep the music alive. Part history, part performance, part family saga, the film features interviews with a veritable who’s who of American music.
