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 />

The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.

In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
