Hosted by author Ted Olson, Doc at 100 is a concert program celebrating the life and legacy of Doc Watson by artists who performed with him, were profoundly influenced by his music, and called him a friend. This includes T. Michael Coleman and Jack Lawrence, who performed, recorded, and toured with Doc longer than any other musicians he worked with. Joining Coleman and Lawrence are fellow guitarists Wayne Henderson and Jack Hinshelwood, who were both heavily impacted by Doc’s music through his many recordings and performances.

The show explores the history and legacy of Watson, who was born in Deep Gap, N.C., in 1923. He went on to become perhaps the most influential acoustic guitarist in the world of folk music. The show will include remembrances of Doc with some special stories, and feature the many powerful songs that Watson played and recorded during his career.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 day of show, $10 for children 12 & younger.
