legendary Carter Family, the Carter Fold performance center, and all

Carter Family Memorial Music Center, a non-profit organization, serves
fans and supporters of old-time country and folk music through the
presentation of weekly performances at the Carter Family Fold, in
Hiltons, Virginia. It also honors the memory of the first family of
country music, the legendary Carter Family (A.P. Carter, Sara
Carter, and Maybelle Carter), whose first recordings (in 1927) are
credited with giving birth to the commercial country music industry.
The Carter Family Memorial Music Center was founded by Janette Carter,
daughter of A.P. and Sara, who with Sara's cousin Maybelle, comprised
the original Carter Family. The Carter Family Memorial Music Center is
directed by Rita Forrester, daughter of Janette Carter.
