Doc & Richard Watson
About Doc & Richard Watson
Whether it's a Gerswhin chestnut, a Jimmie Rodgers blues or something torn from the contemporary pop songbook, part of Doc Watson's particular genius has always been the ability to make every song he touches sound like it grew from the soil of his childhood home in the Great Smoky Mountains. While he may not have grown the songs themselves at home, he's sure helped raise up some fine musicians. Some of his most memorable music was produced in tandem with his late son Merle, and on Third Generation Blues, Merle's son Richard joins in, expertly extending the tradition of the Watson family.
