Condolence & Memory Journal

Have you seen any shows if so, which? all on DVDWhat did you think? I cannot wait to watch the DVD of this show at the cofmort of my house lying on my couch with an ice chilled beer in hand in an air conditioned room just like I did watching all the other shows and truly appreciate the hardwork you put in it. I wish good luck to all the people who worked for this production, and I am sure it will be at least as successful as the previous ones.

I'll never forget (well maybe the year) around 77 or 78 being at the skyline bluegrass festival and Doc and Merle were all set up and ready to play when a big rain came in. The stage crew turned off all the mic's and unplugged everything ready to leave the stage. But Doc told them hey wait -these here folks come to hear us, and I reckon if your gonna have take all the electronics off, that's no problem. All y'all folks just gather in real close. He and Merle play a wonderful set - completely acoustic, and we had front row seats with only about 30 or so other folks not afraid to get wet. Best show I ever saw and made me a true Doc fan and follower. My heart goes out to his wife and family. God has lost an awefully good field solider who always felt compelled to share his testimony of Christ. But now he is playing with his son and friend Earl and God is loving this concert! God blessed you Doc, and you have blessed all of us. Thank you for all the Merlefest music, moments, and memories...

April, 1974 - In a small club on "The Hill" in Boulder, Colorado. A friend had tickets to go see this guy Doc Watson. Unfamiliar with his talent.....we were all blown away. He intoduced his son, Merle, and went on to introduce us to some authentic blue grass of a quality that we had not seen. To this day, I remain a devoted fan.
