Thread Name: Doc Watson--What do you know?
Subject: RE: Doc Watson--What do you know?
Convinced yet?

One of the many great things about Doc and his playing is that, after growing up totally immersed in traditional mountain music, he went on the road with a swing band, so his style incorporates almost as much jazz as bluegrass. In other words, he's a living repository of the entire spectrum of American music. And he's a virtuoso from a technical point of view. And he's a very engaging and endearing person as a performer.
