>Never been to MerleFest
>pretty sure Doc Watson started it

Saw Doc play with Merle's son Richard at the National Folk Festival in Lansing, Michigan last August. Being the fanatic I am, I smooth talked security and wormed my way into meeting Doc...too cool. He's 78 and there probably won't be many more opportunities. We talked for about 10 minutes and it was one of the highlights of my music career. I've read precious few interviews of Doc over the years so I journaled all the details of the conversation.
