Arthel Lane “Doc” Watson
(March 3, 1923 – May 29, 2012)
Family friend and musical maestro Doc Watson has passed away, love to all his family at this time.. my Dad who knew Doc well passed away last year and maybe they’ll get to sit on an old front porch somewhere, shoot the breeze and pick a couple of tunes sometime..
