Thread Name: Merle Watson's death (1949-1985)
Subject: RE: Merle Watson's death
So sad about Merle. He added so much to Doc's music.
Sam McGee the great fingerpicker of Buckdancers' Choice fame supposedly met a similar fate when he suffered a heart attack while driving his tractor, fell off and was run over repeatedly as the wheel had locked. How true this is I can't say.
Yeah Art, I remember Banjo Dancing. It had a long run in D.C in a small room at the Arena Stage. A great show. I wonder what Stephen Wade is up to now?
