Thread Name: Doc Watson--What do you know?
Subject: RE: Doc Watson--What do you know?
I first saw Doc in '62 at the second University of Chicago Folk Festival. He was part of the N. Carolina group consisting of Clarence Tom Ashley, Doc Watson, Gaither Carlton (Doc's father-in-law), and William Clint Howard. It was the very beginning of Doc Watson't presence in the folk music revival in the USA--and ultimately the world. It was the tip of the iceburg that would surface as DOC WATSON. This gig led to his ultimately doing, along with these same people, the influential old-time Music LPs for Folkways Wecords. Bottom line: Doc showed me just how good the music can be made!

Barb, you cannot go wrong!!!!!!
