Doc Watson's inspiring life story and musical genius come alive in this three CD collector's edition. "Legacy" features a concert CD with Grammy-Award winners Doc Watson and David Holt and two CDs of songs and conversation looking back over Doc's 79 years in a revealing and entertaining portrait. A 72-page companion book is filled with historic family photos, additional interviews and stories. Over 34 songs are included.
On the first interview CD, Doc talks about his early years growing up blind in the mountains of North Carolina, doing everything the other kids did, from chopping wood to picking cherries in the tree tops. Hear about Doc's early musical influences, the songs his father taught him and how an old Victrola changed his life.
On the second interview CD, Doc looks back over his career, going from performing on the streets of Boone, NC to becoming a National Treasure and a multi Grammy-Award winner.
On CD number three Doc and David perform live in Asheville, NC. As Doc said, "Everything came together for us that night."
For the extensive liner notes, David interviewed members of Doc's family, friends and fellow musicians, from Rosa Lee Watson to Joan Baez and Ry Cooder. Rare photos of Doc's parents, Doc as a young man, his cat-skin banjo and much more complete the beautifully designed booklet. High Windy Audio is proud to be passing Doc's phenomenal legacy on to you.
