Doc and Merle Watson Concert with Chubby Anthony and Big Timber Bluegrass

Doc and Merle Watson Concert with Chubby Anthony and Big Timber Bluegrass

Date
1977-04-30
Description
Two reel to reels. Recording of a free concert at the Stephen Foster Center, and sponsored by the Florida Folklife Program. Anthony and Big Timber opened for the Watsons, and later joined them for the finale. Doc Watson was discovered by folklorist Ralph Rinzler in 1960 while recording old-time musician Clarence Ashley in North Carolina. Blind since early childhood, Watson had been playing the guitar for much of his adult life when Rinzler found him. Eagerly accepted by the folk revival boom of the 1960s, he soon began recording best-selling albums and playing folk festivals. His son, Merle, joined him by the mid-1960s. They played old time, country, and bluegrass songs. Known primarily for his flat picking on the acoustic guitar, by the 1970s, Watson and son were highly sought after performers. When Donald "Chubby" Anthony died in Gainesville in 1980, he was considered one of the best bluegrass fiddlers in the nation. Born in Wellborn, South Carolina, Anthony began his career as a teen playing for the bluegrass group, the Stanley Brothers. He moved with them to Florida in 1958 to Live Oak. <br />
