An Evening with Doc Watson and David Holt
March 8 at 8:30
The spotlight is on the signature sound and indomitable spirit of five-time Grammy winner and National Medal of Arts honoree Arthel Lane "Doc" Watson (1923-2012). Blind since childhood, Doc developed an innovative flat-picking style of playing guitar and, with his son Merle, helped lead the folk roots revival of the 1960s. David Holt, a fellow Grammy-winner, folklorist and longtime friend of Doc, hosts this celebration of song and story. In this three-act concert, recorded in 1998 at North Carolina's Appalachian State University, Doc, David and Richard Watson (Doc's grandson) perform a variety of duets and solos. Between virtuoso picking and foot-stomping jams on bluegrass, folk and gospel favorites, Doc recounts entertaining anecdotes from his life as well as enduring Appalachian legends.

Patti Page and Nick Clooney co-host new performances and archival classics from the vault.

Italian crooner Julius La Rosa takes the stage to perform his classics "Eh Compari" and "Domani" while Page sings her million-selling "Allegheny Moon." The Four Lads, Four Aces, Four Freshmen, Roger Williams, Herb Reed's Platters, The DeCastro Sisters and others appear to sing more greatest hits. Archival performances from Rosemary Clooney and Perry Como round out this nostalgic sequel to Magic Moments.
