THE WINDING STREAM (South By Southwest Film Festival Austin Texas USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

The Winding Stream—
well-done documentary—uses a nice selection of Western music to tell its story with exceptionally fine documentation of the Carter family’s musical history. It’s definitely worth a watch and introduces a terrific Western musician, Murry Hammond. See his song “I Believe, I Believe” on YouTube for an immersion into some great yodeling.

This documentary details the Carter family’s, June Carter Cash, efforts to keep Western music at the forefront of the American identity.
