Doc Watson was an American original, bridging the genres of bluegrass and folk. I have always thought of bluegrass as a form of American folk music anyway, although it is often thought of as "country."

Thanks for noting his passing, Estevan.

Best,

Bill

We'll miss you, Doc, both the sound of your guitar and your honest North Carolina voice.

i read somewhere that bluegrass music is a favorite of many flamencos. in many respects the two styles followed a similar path. what was really cool about doc watson was his ability to take fiddle music and transpose it to guitar.

back in the 1980's and early 1990's i lived in the house which was the offices for flying fish records--a record label for bluegrass, folk, and similar musical styles. during my "tenure" there i met quite a few musicians who had contact with doc watson (he recorded on their label as well but i do not recall meeting him) and heard great things about him. he was both king in his genre as well a great man--one who had the unpleasant task of burying his son--something no parent should be put in the position of doing.
