rich r Doc Watson: An appreciation. (37) RE: Doc Watson: An appreciation. 14 Jun 99


Saw Doc twice in NC in the 70's. Once at the Folklife festival in Durham and then a couple years later at the University in Chapel Hill. The music just roll out of that man. At the folk festival some of his relatives were there including an uncle or such that told his version of the "true" story of Tom Dula. In Chapel Hill, it was Doc and Merle and T Michael Coleman on the bass, as fine a combo as ever graced a stage. What was even better is that local radio stations rebroadcast both events after the fact and I was able to get tapes of both so I can listen and visualize.

Guy, my wife and I went down to Jugtown several times in the late 70's. I think we still have some pottery we purchased there.
