DOC at 100 is a concert celebrating the life and legacy of Doc Watson, one of the most beloved artists of the 20th century. The celebration features artists who performed with Doc, were profoundly influenced by his music, and called him a “friend”. Artists T. Michael Coleman and Jack Lawrence, performed, recorded, and toured with Doc longer than any other musicians. Joining T. Michael and Jack are fellow guitarists Wayne Henderson and Jack Hinshelwood, who were both heavily impacted by Doc’s music through his many recordings and performances. Concert host is Appalachian music historian, ETSU Professor of Appalachian Studies and current Grammy nominee, Ted Olson. Ted authored “Doc’s World: Traditional Plus”, the book that accompanies the 4 CD compilation of recordings from Doc’s career, “Doc Watson, Life’s Work: A Retrospective”, released in 2022 by Craft Records.
