Doc Watson (Born 1923)

An accomplished instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter, this native of Deep Gap, North Carolina, has been performing professionally since childhood. He lost his sight before his first birthday, but that did not prevent him from becoming a proficient guitar player and banjoist. He developed his own “Watson style” of traditional guitar flat picking and has had a great influence on the work of such other star instrumentalists as Tony Rice and Clarence White. He was awarded the National Medal of the Arts by President Clinton in 1997.
