Doc Watson

Doc Watson died last week. The blind bluegrass/folk/country guitarist probably deserves every word of the numerous accolades in the media following his death. New York Times: “profoundly influenced generations of folk and rock guitarists.”  LA Times:  “He never misses a stroke or a strike, singing melodic runs with his voice that move in glorious counterpoint to the notes springing from his guitar. “ Rolling Stone: “Watson continued to record and perform well into this century, leaving an imprint, legacy and discography that will never stop reverberating in American music and the stories we tell with it.” Miami Herald: “Watson's influence was vast, on audiences and other musicians.”  Doc Watson recorded over 50 albums and won 8 Grammy’s . The world of acoustic music will miss him.
