Thread Name: Doc Watson: An appreciation.
Subject: RE: Doc Watson: An appreciation.
I went to see Doc about ten years ago in a pretty small house, where he was billed as the solo act. Doc entered on the arm of a sort of shaggy looking guy who was doing his best not to be noticed at first. When the shaggy guy stepped into the light, it turned out to be Grisman. Doc called the night "arrangements while you wait". Occasionally Doc would call out the key of the next tune, but other than that it was up to Grisman to keep up and devil take the hindermost. What a night. He is the boss.
