Three Days with Doc Watson
Three Days with Doc Watson • An excellent documentary produced by folk researcher A.L. Lloyd in 1976. "Three days with Doc Watson" was originally shown on the BBC "Omnibus" series. Arthel Lane "Doc" Watson of Deep Gap, North Carolina, was an American guitarist, songwriter and singer of bluegrass, folk, country, blues and gospel music. Watson won seven Grammy awards as well as a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. "The northwest corner of North Carolina is still probably the busiest nook in the United States for domestic music, singing, fiddling, banjo-picking, and it’s no accident that when Cecil Sharp was collecting songs and ballads in the Appalachians in 1916 it was precisely this small area that yielded the greatest harvest." ~ A.L. Lloyd. "Western North Carolina has long been recognized as one of the richest repositories of folk song and lore in the southeastern United States." ~ Ralph Rinzler. "Western North Carolina song and lore are contained in some of Doc Watson’s earliest memories." ~ Dan Miller.
