There are tons of photos of the Carter Family, but I've never seen one late enough to be really fitting for this post, so I've just decided to post it without a photo. It has been said numerous times in tv documentaries and by people that should know better that the Original Carter Family (AP, Sara, and Maybelle) did not perform together anymore after sometime in the early 1940s. This just isn't so. Here is a live recordings of A.P., Sara, and Maybelle in 1953 performing at a memorial event for Jimmie Rodgers in Meridian, Mississippi.
Apparently, there were quite a few major figures in country music there. Check out this youtube video of Roy Acuff sharing his memories of the Rodgers memorial event in Meridian.
A.P. - spoken intros and bass vocals
Sara - ryhthm guitar and lead vocals
Maybelle - lead guitar and harmony vocals
