As she did with Edna Lewis in Bring Me Some Apples and I'll Make You a Pie, Robbin Gourley tells a story about the early life of Doc Watson (1923-2012), a blind musician from North Carolina who won 7 Grammy Awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and had a deep, enduring influence on how the flattop acoustic guitar is used in folk, roots, and bluegrass music.
