Steve and Lisa Ball will present Appalachian Roots music of The Carter Family, a traditional American folk group who recorded between 1927-1956. Their music had a profound impact on bluegrass, country, southern gospel, pop, rock and the folk revival of the 1960s.

The program details, in story and song, the life and recording career of this famous family, including the formation of the trio, their audition at the “Bristol Sessions” and rise to international fame. Their songs were based on music from the middle of the 19th century, which A.P. Carter recorded from the descendants of British families living in the hills around southwestern Virginia.

Steve is a musician from Columbus who specializes in American Civil War music, as well as music featuring the life of Stephen Foster and The Carter Family. He has studied the American Civil War since his teens and has devoted the past 20 years to studying the music of this era in American history.

His wife, Lisa, often joins him on bass and vocal harmonies. She has been playing piano since she was a child, and in 2013, began playing upright bass.

This event is a co-sponsored program with the Port Clinton Musical Arts Series and PC Musical Arts Series’ Concert Sponsor: The Frederick Agency - Jone & Lori Madison.

Masks required. Please practice safe social distancing. While some seating is provided in Bettinger Park, guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets. In the case of inclement weather, this event will be cancelled.
