** Closed until further notice.**
The probability of any festivals in 2020 is unlikely due to government mandates and CDC recommendations.

Based on recommendations from President Donald Trump, Governor Ralph Northam and the nation’s health protection agency that all mass gatherings be cancelled during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Carter Family Fold will be closed until  June 10th. Should further closures be necessary, announcements will be made on our website and Facebook prior to those events. We hope that circumstances change and we can re-start our Saturday shows before that time. We regret that cancelling shows is necessary, but we want to do all we can to keep everyone safe.  

Under the guidance of the CDC, we feel closing is the best for the health of our visitors, volunteers and bands. The CDC states that “COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is an emerging respiratory disease and there is more to learn about its transmission, clinical course and populations at increased risk of disease and complications”

The Carter Family Fold is a family friendly, alcohol and drug free facility.

** Announcement **

The Carter Music Center is proud to announce that the Ken Burns Florentine Films documentary on country music that premiered on PBS can be streamed on some services.  You can also order copies from PBS and Amazon.  The series kicks off with a concert from the historic Ryman Auditorium and traces country music to its’ humble beginnings in the early part of this century. There is a total of eight segments which represent the most comprehensive documentation of country music to date. It has received a glowing review from Rolling Stone Magazine.
