Just when we thought we’d seen it all from Johnny Cash, Winding Stream rolls into town. The Winding Stream tells the tale of the musical Carter and Cash Family, the dynasty at the heart of country music. A 90-minute documentary starting with the Original Carter Family – A.P., Sara and Maybelle – this film traces the flow of their influence through generations of musicians, the transformation of that act into the Carter Sisters and Mother Maybelle, the marriage of Johnny Cash and June Carter, and the efforts of the present-day family to keep this musical legacy alive. It is an epic saga and one that’s never been told in its entirety on film. Their story is woven through interviews with family and friends, most notably Johnny Cash, who knew the Carters best.
Finally, the film details the efforts of present-day family to keep this legacy alive. The goal of The Winding Stream is to honor this multi-generational family where it stands — at the headwaters of American roots music. Without the Carter family, there would be no Folk Revival of the ’60s, no country–rock bands of the ’70s, and no Americana devotees of our present era. The Carters crossed styles, crossed genres and crossed generations
