Carnegie Hall kicks off its 36th season with a special event as it presents “The Winding Stream: The Carters, the Cashes, and The Course of Country Music” on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7:30 p.m.
The film is in conjunction with the Carlene Carter performance at Carnegie Hall Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is only $5.
The Winding Stream is a 90–minute documentary shot in high definition. It tells the stories of the Carters, the Cashes, and their influence on the history of American recorded music through narrator-less interviews. Celebrated roots music practitioners like Johnny and June Carter Cash, George Jones, Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson and others, punctuate the saga with studio performances. The film’s goal is to illuminate the foundation–forming history of this multi-generational musical family. Country music would not be what it is without them.
