Product Description

This trio of musicians from Raleigh, N.C. has had several previous releases, but this new issue is a well done tribute to the late & great Doc Watson. The disc features the finger style picking of Larry Nixon, with tasteful backing by David Blevins (flat pick guitar) and Steven Gage (bass). It is quite clear that Mr. Nixon has a great respect and knowledge of Watson’s music, and every one of the 17 songs and tunes here is well chosen and very nicely played. ( To show how immersed Nixon is in Doc’s repertoire, Larry points out in the notes just how many times a given song was commercially recorded by Doc (I Am A Pilgrim 4 times, Watson Blues 3 times, Shady Grove 7 times, and Ready For The Times To Get Better—just once, etc.) (Which reminds us just how nice it would be to have a full discography of Doc—just about everything Watson recorded was top flight). Other songs and tunes on this CD include GREENVILLE TRESTLE, JOHN HENRY, PALLET ON THE FLOOR, WINDY & WARM, DOC’S GUITAR, etc. By the way, Nixon is part of a very popular long running Sunday night DJ team (with Tim Woodall) for the Pine Cone Bluegrass show out of Raleigh, North Carolina (WQDR, 6 PM to 9 PM).
