Doc at 100 - Buy Tickets Here 

We invite you to join us on Saturday May 11, for a full day of music and family fun from 12:00 PM 'til 9:00 PM.

About the event

DOC AT 100 is a concert program celebrating the life and legacy of Doc Watson by artists who performed with Doc, who were profoundly influenced by his music, and who called him a friend.

Ted Olson, professor of Appalachian Studies at East Tennessee State University, will MC the program and share his knowledge of Doc and his influence on the Appalachian culture and beyond, encouraging audience participation in the celebration.

Joining Ted will be guitarists Jack Lawrence, Wayne Henderson, and Jack Hinshelwood. Each of whom were heavily impacted by Doc’s music, either through direct collaboration over the years, or through his many recordings and performances. Wayne counted Doc as a close friend, especially in Doc’s later years when he enjoyed visiting Wayne in his guitar making shop in Rugby, Virginia, just a hop skip and a jump from Doc’s lifetime home of Deep Gap, North Carolina.

The ticketed portion of the event will start at 3:00 PM so feel free to join us ahead of time for the family fun, food trucks, and more. The cafe at Little River Roasting will be open and Bald Guy BBQ will be here serving out of the Spartan for the duration. Music will start at 12:30 with a performance by local artist “Caston”, “Emily with Strings Attached” and followed at 6:00 PM by our special guest, Doc At 100!
