Goodbye to Doc Watson 1923 – 2012

Awe-inspiring guitarist, Grammy award winning folksinger, and treasured American performer Arthel “Doc” Watson passed away on May 29, 2012 at age 89.

The blind, flat-picking guitar player inspired many country, bluegrass, and folk musicians with his technical ability, gentle nature and authentic voice.  Doc will be missed, but his music is timeless.
