Arthel Doc Watson, ein blinder Sänger, Banjo- und Gitarrenvirtuose, wurde durch die Volksmusik seiner engeren Heimat und die Country Music der 30er und 40er Jahre geprägt. Auf der Gitarre hatte er einen unverwechselbaren Finger-Picking-Stil entwickelt, der ihn bei den Folk Festivals der 60er und 70er Jahre rasch zum Favoriten des meist jugendlichen Publikums werden ließ. Impulse für diese Spielweise auf der Gitarre hatte Doc Watson von seinem großen Vorbild Merle Travis bezogen und hatte folgerichtig dann auch seinem Sohn den Namen Merle gegeben, Merle Watson, der in die Fußstapfen seines Vaters trat und bei den meisten Schallplattenaufnahmen und Konzerten auch mit dabei war. Wichtige Stilmittel in der Musik von Doc und Merle Watson, der Swing und der Blues.
