Few people have had such a pronounced effect on folk music as Doc Watson. I started listening to Doc when I was about 2, my dad would play his cassette tapes on long trips in the car. His smooth playing style and friendly voice made him one of the most respected flat-picking/finger-picking guitar players the world has seen. Check him out for yourself:
Dirty Bourbon River Show is back in the beautiful city of Carbondale today for another double header. First we have the 43rd annual Carbondale Mountain Air festival at 5pm, then at 8:30 walk down the street to Steve’s guitars for an in store performance! We’ve got a whole day full of music for you! Hope to see you there!
Noah would like to tell you all something about his guitar:
“This is my guitar. I have played her on the road for years. She earns my bread, keeps me clothed, keeps me fed, makes people dance, makes people happy. She is my baby.
“I am fortunate enough to spend my life playing this guitar with an amazing band some of you may have heard of – the Dirty Bourbon River Show. My band and I are currently trying to raise funds to record our next album, and we are way way behind… we have less than 10 days to raise $6,000, or we won’t meet our 10k goal, and wont get any of our funding….
“And so, to the next person out there that donates $1,000 to our project and brings us up to 50% funded, I will give you my guitar. Straight up. I’ll even clean her up, put some more dope-ass parts in, set her up, and string/tune her to your preferred action / gauge / etc and then you can have my baby. I’ve played her full time for over 3 years. And now, I want her to go to a good home.
Noah’s guitar amp was acting a little funny so we took it to Morelock Music in Knoxville before our show at Machiavelli’s in Bristol, Tennessee. Mr. Morelock had it up and running in no time. Thank you sir.
