Nobody plays a flat-top guitar quite like the versatile Doc Watson, and with Third Generation Blues, Watson teams with his grandson Richard to present a collection of 14 exquisite blues, country-folk, and gospel covers, each one as unique as a fingerprint. They perform the tunes on guitar, accompanied only by T. Michael Coleman on bass. From the down-home blues of Bubba White's "Honey Please Don't Go" and the country blues of Jimmie Rodgers' "Train Whistle Blues," to the up-tempo rendering of the classic "House of the Rising Sun," the Watsons again provide the smooth vocals and seamless guitar work for which both men have become known and respected. "If I Were a Carpenter" and "Milk Cow Blues" are both incredible, and the duet dishes up the gospel music with a huge dose of spirit, from "Uncloudy Day" to "Precious Lord Take My Hand," and the folk music fires burn brightly on "Gypsy Davey" and "Moody River." The blues make their way around again with "Columbus Stockade Blues" and "Walk on Boy," and the Watsons' reading of "Summertime (And the Living Is Easy)" is simply intense. There has always been something just plain enjoyable about Doc -- perhaps it is his easygoing demeanor or his undeniably easy-to-digest vocal style, or maybe it's the fact that he's one of the hottest flatpickers this side of Chet Atkins. Third Generation Blues offers prime examples of all of these traits, accompanied by the astounding picking of Richard to create an album that sets itself apart from the rest as a diamond in the rough. This is a collection of some of the most loved blues, gospel, and folk tunes of the 20th century, performed by some of the best minstrels of the century.

10 Queens of Folk

An acoustic guitar. Sometimes not much else. But always a unique voice… In recent years, the folk revival has produced some new major and exceptional female singers, just like their elders in the sixties, and particularly the seventies. Some of these Queens of folk have earnt their place in the Hall of Fame, while others remain equally essential hidden gems. This (subjective) selection features ten of the best.

Guy Clark, poet and troubadour

He was worshipped by Johnny Cash and many others, but remained largely unknown until his death two years ago, in May 2016. Who was Guy Clark, the immense Texan songwriter, the unmatched narrator, the troubadour with the husky voice whose compositions were interpreted by all the big names of country and folk?

Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?
