Goodbye, Doc Watson

I had the pleasure of taking in a performance by Doc Watson some years ago in Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center. Doc died today at 89, not long after another titan of the traditional country scene, Earl Scruggs, with whom Doc sometimes performed. In the clip above, thanks to Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop, he does "Tennessee Stud", a song I first heard him perform on Will the Circle Be Unbroken.
