Old Maybelle was pretty good. However, when I play my Johnny Cash box set I always find myself fast forwarding the Carter family tongue

Johnny was very fond of the Carters, of course. And he recorded this gorgeous tribute to Sarah and Maybelle for one of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken' albums:

When the time came to go, Sarah said "Must I bring my guitar?"

A.P. said "Well, if we're a-goin' to make a record, I think you better brang yer guitar!"

A.P. had a dream--that a poor man could get out of Poor Valley by gettin' inter the show business.
Bristol, Tennessee it was, in 1927. The recording people were from the Victor Talking Machine Co. Jimmie Rodgers made his first recordings at the same session.

Probably the first Carter Family song I knew:



Lonnie Donegan was a fan of the Carters as well as Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie (and Lonnie Johnson of course...), and it was Lonnie who introduced me to the song in 1957:



He also did this one:



Unsurprisingly, Dolly Parton has also recorded 'My Dixie Darling' (in company with Arlo Guthrie):

A fine show of well choreographed clogging here, or flat footin' as some say, filmed at the Newport Folk Festival in 1964, I think:
