Fraze Pavilion

Hundreds of people gathered in Deep Gap, N.C., Sunday to say goodbye to Doc Watson, one of the true giants of American music who died May 29 at the age of 89. 

The best way to honor the kindly gentleman, who lost his sight as a baby, is to have a musician explain the impact that he had on generations of players.

WNKU’s Pam Temple, who plays with husband Spencer Funk in Wild Carrot, wrote this gracious tribute.
