I heard from Beth Harrington today that her film "The Winding Stream: The Carters, The Cashes, and the Course of Country Music" is NOW available for streaming and on DVD!!! If you're a Carter Family fan, or simply someone who enjoyed our graphic novel "The Carter Family: Don't Forget This Song", I can tell you that you'll love this movie! And now everyone with access to the Internet has a chance to see this movie...
Here is Beth's announcement:
NOW AVAILABLE! THE WINDING STREAM!
Dear Friends –
The wait is over!
The Winding Stream – The Carters, the Cashes and the Course of Country Music is available today!
Our award-winning, critically-lauded, audience-beloved film about the foundational family at the heart of Americana music is finally out!
It’s available for download on iTunes
or on DVD through Amazon.com or wherever DVDs are sold!
As you might imagine, we’re incredibly excited. For those of you who have not yet seen the film at festivals or in your local theater, we sincerely hope you enjoy the film. We are grateful for how supportive and patient you’ve been.
As of today, also note that you can get the DVD, companion book and soundtrack CD on The Winding Stream website as a bundle (or separately).
Hope you’ll also spread the word about this new development to your music-loving friends!
