Thread Name: Doc Watson--What do you know?
Subject: RE: Doc Watson--What do you know?
No, Barbara, you shouldn't go. If you go, you will make me extremely jealous.
I once made a last-minute try to get into a Doc Watson / Davis Grisman concert in Sacramento. No luck - not one single ticket in the box office or for sale on the street. Not one - and there were all these young people going in the door to hear Old Doc, and not one of them had pity on Poor Joe Offer, who has never in his life had the chance to see Doc perform.
Just once in my life, I'd like to attend a Doc Watson performance. And if I could see Jean Ritchie and Pete Seeger, too, I could die a happy man...
