When Doc Watson & Merle Travis Met for the First Time

Merle Travis and Doc WatsonArtist/producer John McEuen has posted a YouTube video of the meeting of Doc Watson and Merle Travis. This was definitely a special moment in American musical history. In 1966, the Nitty Gritty Dirt band had their first important show opening for Merle Travis at the Ash Grove in Hollywood, California. Five years later, they invited Travis to meet Doc Watson for the first time. The meeting was during the historic 'Circle' sessions.
