29 July – remembering Anita Carter (31 Mar 1933-29 July 1999), youngest of The Carter Sisters (Helen, June and Anita), daughters of Maybelle Carter of the original Carter Family, the legendary Virginian folk and old timey trio. Anita joined the Grand Old Opry with sisters Helen and June in 1950 as The Carter Sisters, and over the years recorded prolifically, both as a solo artist and with her sisters, sometimes accompanied by Mother Maybelle. Anita was a talented distinctive vocalist and multi instrumentalist, mainly playing bass. BACM have issued a CD, CARTER SISTERS & MOTHER MAYBELLE The Complete Original Recordings 1949-1952, which has the sisters doing superb versions of several Carter Family classics including Wildwood Flower.
