Front Cover

The front cover shows a dark brown wood frame containing a sepia photograph of the Carter Family sitting at the front bumper of an old car. Sara Carter is in the center holding an autoharp. She is looking towards her cousin Maybelle Carter, on her left, who is playing a guitar. A.P. Carter, sitting on Sara's right, looks at the camera.

Liner Notes

If you travel to the Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia, you'll find great information about the Carter Family who were discovered there along with Jimmie Rodgers at the historic 1927 "Bristol Sessions."

At the same museum, you'll also see the Mountain Dulcimer made for Mother Maybelle Carter by legendary dulcimer builder Bob Mize. I imagine many of the old tunes collected by the original Carter family were written and played on the mountain dulcimer in the holders and mountains of Appalachia. With the renewed interest in the Carter Family, it seemed like a great time for Carter Family Tunes Arranged for the Fretted Dulcimer. Hope you enjoy and always try to "Keep on the Sunny Side!"
