Carter Family Flash Mob

Description

Last week a flash mob convened at the Portland, Oregon Saturday Market and sang the Carter Family classic "Will The Circle Be Unbroken." 

 

These singers and musicians gathered to celebrate the work of the Carters, and also to raise awareness of The Winding Stream – a documentary that charts the course of country music through its founding family and the lives of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. 
What's exciting about Director Beth Harrington's project is how, with an arc that continues through Johnny Cash, we see the music of Clinch Mountain transcending rural/urban and traditional/contemporary boundaries – offering the work of A.P, Sara, and Maybelle as a part of an inheritance accessible to all listeners, whether they live in Appalachia or New York City or London.
