Chris Brashear and Jim Henry sing and play the Music of Doc Watson.

 

Chris Brashear and Jim Henry will headline the Tribute to Doc Watson which will be held on 2/28 at the Parlor Room. They were kind enough to join me for the first hour of Nine Volt Heart on WXOJ. The live set began with the classic, “Deep River Blues” followed by the mournful “Dream of a Miner’s Child”. We also heard Jim Henry’s recorded tune “Doc’s Rag” in between the in-studio performances. A nice version of “Columbus Stockade Blues” is followed by Chris and Jim’s rendition of “Black Mountain Rag”. We listened to Billy String’s version of “Beaumont Rag” along with a live version of “Windy and Warm”. The recording finishes with Doc’s “Your Lone Journey” and “Whiskey For Breakfast”

Both Chris and Jim are incredible musicians and tell some great stories throughout.  There will be a full lineup of stellar players joining this duo including Paul Kochanski, Eric Lee, Rebecca Jones, Max Wareham and Tracy Grammar! Enjoy the session on the audio track above.
