Locality: Scott County

Rt. 614
Hiltons, VA 24258

The Carter fold is a rustic, 1,000 seat music shed offering traditional music every Saturday night. Museum opens an hour prior to the show. The Carter Family was discovered in 1927 by Victor Recording Studio in Bristol and recorded 300 songs between 1927 and 1942. Playing traditional Appalachian music, the family has often been credited as forerunners of modern-day country music. Today, A.P. Carter's old general store acts as a museum and. A.P.'s youngest daughter Jannette acts as mistress of ceremony.
Recent additions include the newly moved and ronstructed original A.P. Carter Homeplace.
