Screening will be preceded by a live performance by Fraser Union and guest singer Kathy Griffin, who will play a selection of Carter Family favourites.
DOXA and the Kay Meek Centre are very pleased to present Beth Harrington’s The Winding Stream – a boot-stomping yodeling great tribute to the Carter Family, founding members of American folk music and legendary progenitors of the grand old folk tradition. From homely roots, the Carter legacy has spanned generations, and the power of their harmonies and heart-felt songs echo through American music to this day. Musicians from John Prine to George Jones to the late great Johnny Cash weigh in on their profound influence and impact. (Cash, having married into the Carter family, with wife June Carter-Cash, provides a particularly poignant take on this vibrant chapter in music history.)
The screening will be preceded by a selection of Carter Family favourites from Fraser Union and guest singer Kathy Griffin. Fraser Union have been performing and recording songs that have a great deal of meaning to them and their audiences since 1983. In addition to performances at the Filberg Festival, ArtsWells Festival, Vancouver Folk Music Festival, Vancouver Island MusicFest, Seattle Folklife Festival, Islands Folk Festival, Mayworks, Winter Roots Festival, they have also been featured on CBC.
