Deep River Blues

(Doc Watson)  I love to buy music on whim when I travel, to take a chance and judge a book (well, a CD) by its cover.  My introduction to old-time music came from one such purchase on a trip to Gatlinburg in the spring of 2006.  I was in the gift shop at the welcome center for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, perusing a wall of CDs and trying to find some appropriate music—preferably banjo music, I thought—for my solo auto tour of the Cade’s Cove loop.  I was drawn to the 3 disk boxed set Legacy, with Doc Watson and David Holt, and it did not disappoint.  Doc’s version of the Delmore brothers’ “Big River Blues,” which he recorded as “Deep River Blues,” is what made me want to start playing this music in the first place.
