Thanks for the heads up for my Doc Watson post, Pat. Been playing his music non-stop all day...can't believe he's gone.

Windy and Warm- Doc & Merle Watson

Nice link to one of his best pieces. Shows off the seamless interplay with his son too.

We've been losing a lot of good people lately.

Ecclesiastes (and Pete Seeger in '59) said it best.

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Doc shared his time with us and I'm sure grateful.

Now its time to check out where John Prine is gonna be playing next.

Doc & Merle were magical together on stage, PD, although Jack Lawrence filled the bill very nicely on the occasions I saw him play. Doc would cue Merle's guitar solos sometimes with, "How do you feel about it, Merle?" Merle usually felt pretty good.

Re: John Prine- no better lyricist around (Dylan may have gotten the honors from PBO, but Prine deserves them equally- MHO).

Looks like he's starting a short summer tour at the end of June:
