Doc Watson @ Lincoln Center

On Saturday evening I headed up to Lincoln center to see Doc Watson perform as part of the "Roots of American Music" series. Doc has had a huge influence on folk, bluegrass, and traditional American roots music. He was born in North Carolina, and has created a style all his own. He was blind from infancy and taught himself to play first the banjo and then the guitar. In the cool summer night Doc played a magnificent set of classic bluegrass and folk songs. One highlight for me was his take on the song "Shady Grove". It was performed brilliantly and slowly faded out in the soft sounds of crickets.
