Doc Watson is reportedly in critical condition as a result of a recent fall. He is 89 years old.
He is considered the greatest flatpicker of our time, and his extraordinary life, starting with his blindness in infancy, is an inspiration.
"Watson was blinded by an eye infection shortly after birth. His talent gave him a way to earn a living, a career he said he probably wouldn't have embarked on without his eyesight limitations.
He toured with his son Merle and has won seven Grammy awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award."
Prayers up for his recovery, and our thoughts go out to his family.
