Performance Theater at Birthplace of Country Music Museum

In the 1930s, A. P. Carter bought a Martin 000-28 guitar to play on border radio from Mexico. A fancy guitar for the time, it is now considered one of the finest examples of the "golden age" of Martin production. That guitar was later handed down to A.P.'s grandson, Dale Jett and is currently on display in the museum's Carter Family exhibit, running through February 28. When a guitar of this caliber needs repair, Jett trusts friend and luthier Wayne Henderson to do the job. Songs and Stories is an intimate concert experience and rare occasion to hear A.P. Carter's guitar played by Jett and Henderson.
