Smart Bets: Tribute to Doc Watson

The late Doc Watson, guitarist extraordinaire, was more than a collaborator with local musician (and Grammy winner) David Holt: He was also Holt's friend. The two began playing together in 1998, and one of their first performances was broadcast on UNC-TV. Musician/storyteller/TV host Holt "traces the life and legacy of national treasure and folk legend" Watson with a matinee performance at Asheville’s Diana Wortham Theatre on Sunday, Aug. 12. According to press for the event, "Holt pays tribute to his mentor with stories, songs and historic photographs." Jeff Hersk joins the concert on bass and harmony vocals. 3 p.m.; tickets are $20 and proceeds benefit Shindig on the Green. dwtheatre.com.
