JANETTE CARTER, the last surviving child of Carter Family founders A.P. and Sara Carter, died January 22 in Kingsport, Tennessee, after a long battle with various illnesses. She was 82. Janette and her brother Joe, who died in March 2005, released an album titled Last Of Their Kind in 2004 on Dualtone. Janette was the driving force behind the Carter Fold, the family homestead in southern Virginia which has long presented performances of traditional country music. Janette’s daughter, Rita Forrester, says the Fold will continue to carry on the family’s efforts to present and preserve Appalachian music.
