Doc Watson

Guitarist, singer and songwriter Doc Watson is one of America's most revered folk musicians; he's often called the finest flat-picker in the country, and the only argument about that comes from people who don't want to praise his playing at the expense of his singing.

Vanguard Records has released a four-CD retrospective of his career.

This show originally aired Jan. 19, 1996; it contains material from a 1988 interview and a 1989 studio concert.
