Baby boomers who enjoyed the likes of Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez in the folk revival of the ‘60s will be interested in the life and music of world-renowned guitarist Doc Watson--for more than half a century a force in the creation, interpretation, and preservation of American roots music. In this beautifully produced program, the first two parts combine interviews and music that cover Watson’s early years growing up in the mountains of North Carolina and his musical career, from performing on the streets of Boone to winning a Grammy. The third part features a show-stopping concert by Holt and Watson in Asheville. The long and warm friendship between Watson and Holt shines throughout. As Watson’s authentic Appalachian memories bring back a time long lost, his mastery of instrument and voice strikes awe in the listener. E.K.D.
