On Thursday, January 25, at 12:10, Music School Folk Coordinator David Surette presents “The Unbroken Circle: the Carter Family and the roots of Americana.” The Carter Family and their classic music were present at many of the signal events of acoustic roots music in the 20th century. From the dawn of the recording industry and the rise of radio, to the birth of commercial country music, the folk revival of the 1960s, and the acoustic revival of the new millennium, this humble trio from Virginia played a fascinating part. Come and learn more, as David’s lecture—with musical examples – tells this many-faceted story.
David Surette (folk coordinator, folk ensembles, mandolin, folk guitar) holds a B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. As part of a duo with his wife, singer Susie Burke, they have performed and recorded several albums, building a reputation as one of New England’s top folk duos. Mr. Surette was a founding member of the Airdance band with fiddler Rodney Miller, with whom he recorded four albums and toured nationally. He has also released five critically-acclaimed solo CDs. His most recent solo release, Sun Dog, is a collection of original guitar solos.
