Conversations with Doc Watson

Doc Watson

Seven-time Grammy Award-winner Doc Watson has appeared with David Holt several times on UNC-TV. Portions of those earlier shows and a new interview are combined as a retrospective of Doc's life and career. From humble beginnings in the mountains of North Carolina, Doc has built a world-wide reputation as a powerful singer and masterful guitar player. But he has never left his roots, preferring to let his influence spread quietly through his music. In doing so, he has become one of our nation's musical treasures.
