REVIEW: Doc Watson (1923 – 2012) was widely regarded as the finest flat-picking guitarist and preeminent folk artist of his time. Doc was a living musical treasury of Americana. In this Ramblin’ concert recorded in 1980, Doc was joined by his sonMerle (who sadly passed away in 1985 in a tractor accident) on guitar and banjo and Michael Coleman on bass. Their performance is a showcase of native folk traditions and a display of distinctive stylistic inventions. Doc and Merle Watson’s repertoire encompassed country ballads, bluegrass, gospel, jazz standards, contemporary songs and blues. A visit with Doc and Merle at home in Deep Gap, North Carolina and in concert in Rock Hill, South Carolina is also included.
