Farewell to Doc and Rosa

In Loving Memory of “Just One of the People”


All of us at the MusicFest ‘n Sugar Grove are deeply saddened by the 2012 passing of both Doc Watson and his loving wife, Rosa Lee.
Arthel Lane “Doc” Watson was recipient of the National Medal of Arts, a National Heritage Fellowship, and eight Grammy Awards. But to all of us he was just Doc.
While his rich baritone voice, brilliantly distinctive style of flat picking and warm personality will be greatly missed, we all feel blessed by the time we spent up close and personal just listening to Doc’s guitar.
In his own humble words, he was,
‘just one of the people.’
