Another North Carolina legend passes on: RIP Doc Watson

Just two months ago we lost Bluegrass icon Earl Scruggs. Yesterday, Folk legend Doc Watson died at the age of 89. Both were from my native North Carolina and each played a huge role in the Tar Heel state’s rich musical tradition.

Today S&R bids a fond farewell to one of America’s true innovators. Happy travels, Doc.
