Doc Watson (1923-2012)

Doc Watson died this week. He was 89. If you know anything about acoustic guitar, you've at least heard of Doc Watson. I don't have a lot of time to write about this incredible talent right now, maybe over the weekend. But, it's Friday, so maybe a little music for the afternoon would be nice.

This is a tune called "Black Mountain Rag." Wow.

  • I had the pleasure of seeing Doc many, many times, as for several years I lived just down the road from him in Deep Gap, NC. He would play at a little restaurant nearby on the odd Wednesday evening, and I often made it a point to be there to catch him.

    Not to mention Merlefest and the like.

  • I never had the pleasure of seeing Doc Watson perform live. Sounds great.
