Default Doc Watson

Grammy-winning U.S. guitarist and folk singer Arthel Lane "Doc" Watson died on Tuesday in a North Carolina hospital at age 89, his management company said.
Watson died at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, following abdominal surgery last week, Folklore Productions International said in a statement.

Watson, who was blinded before his first birthday, won seven Grammy Awards, in addition to the Grammy for lifetime achievement he received in 2004. In 2006 he won in the category of best country instrumental performance for his playing on "Whiskey Before Breakfast."
Watson was born on March 3, 1923, in Deep Gap, N.C., to a banjo-playing father, General Watson, and a mother who sang traditional secular and religious songs, Annie Watson.
