Guitar picking master Doc Watson dies at 89 -

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Watson got his musical start in 1953, playing electric lead guitar in a country-and-western swing band. His road to fame began in 1960 when Ralph Rinzler, a musician who also managed Bill Monroe, discovered Watson in North Carolina. That led Watson to the Newport Folk Festival in 1963 and his first recording contract a year later. He went on to record 60 albums, and wowed fans ranging from ‘60s hippies to fans of traditional country and folk music. According to the Encyclopedia of Country Music, Watson took his nickname at age 19 when someone couldn’t pronounce his name and a girl in the audience shouted “Call him Doc!” Seven of his albums won Grammy awards; his eighth Grammy was a lifetime achievement award in 2004. He also received the National Medal of the Arts from President Bill Clinton in 1997. “There may not be a serious, committed baby boomer alive who didn’t at some point in his or her youth try to spend a few minutes at least trying to learn to pick a guitar like Doc Watson,” Clinton said at the time. Folklore described Watson as “a powerful singer and a tremendously influential picker who virtually invented the art of playing mountain fiddle tunes on the flattop guitar.” Countless guitarists have tried to emulate Watson’s renditions of songs such as “Tennessee Stud,” ‘’Shady Grove,” and “Deep River Blues.” Doc Watson’s son Merle began recording and touring with him in 1964. But Merle Watson died at age 36 in a 1985 tractor accident, sending his father into deep grief and making him consider retirement. Instead, he kept playing and started Merlefest, an annual musical event in Wilkesboro, N.C., that raises money for a community college there and celebrates “traditional plus” music. “When Merle and I started out we called our music ‘traditional plus,’ meaning the traditional music of the Appalachian region plus whatever other styles we were in the mood to play,” Doc Watson is quoted as saying on the festival’s website. “Since the beginning, the people of the college and I have agreed that the music of MerleFest is ‘traditional plus.’” Doc Watson has said that when Merle died, he lost the best friend he would ever have. He also relied on his wife, Rosa Lee, whom he married in 1947. “She saw what little good there was in me, and there was little,” Watson told the AP in 2000. “I’m awful glad she cared about me, and I’m awful glad she married me.” In a PBS NewsHour interview before a January appearance in Arlington, Va., Watson recalled his father teaching him how to play harmonica to a tune his parents had sung in church, as well as his first bus trip to New York City to perform in the early 1960s. He gave an early solo performance at Gerde’s Folk City in Greenwich Village, a hot spot for the folk music revival, and later played Carnegie Hall. Telling the stories in a folksy manner, he broke into a quiet laugh at various points. He said he still enjoyed touring. “I love mu...

Earl Scruggs dead at 88 - Newsday

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Johnny Cash's baritone or Hank Williams' heartbreak. Scruggs passed away Wednesday morning at 88 of natural causes. The legacy he helped build with bandleader Bill Monroe, guitarist Lester Flatt and the rest of the Blue Grass Boys was evident all around Nashville, where he died in an area hospital. His string-bending, mind-blowing way of picking helped transform a regional sound into a national passion. "It's not just bluegrass, it's American music," bluegrass fan turned country star Dierks Bentley said. "There's 17- or 18-year-old kids turning on today's country music and hearing that banjo and they have no idea where that came from. That sound has probably always been there for them and they don't realize someone invented that three-finger roll style of playing. You hear it everywhe...

Bluegrass legend, banjo innovator Earl Scruggs dies at age 88

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
NASHVILLE — Bluegrass legend and banjo pioneer Earl Scruggs, who helped profoundly change country music with Bill Monroe in the 1940s and later with guitarist Lester Flatt, has died. He was 88. Scruggs' son Gary said his father died of natural causes Wednesday morning at a Nashville hospital. Earl Scruggs was an innovator who pioneered the modern banjo sound. His use of three fingers rather than the clawhammer style elevated the banjo from a part of the rhythm section — or a comedian's prop — to a lead instru... (The Commercial Appeal)

'Who Do You Think You Are?' 'Reba McEntire' on NBC Recap -

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
She was named after her grandmother and not too much more. She went on with her mother and started her hunt in Monroe County, Mississippi. In 1910, she was ten years old searching for B.W. Brassfield, her great-great grandfather. She went to the library to find archives of old obituaries, but found a dead end. The historian in Mississippi gave her more info. The spelling of the name changed from Brassfield to Brasfield and the historian found her history back to the 1700s. She then went to North Carolina to find George Brasfield, her four-times great-grandfather, before Raleigh was even the capital. George Brasfield owned a bar, so they checked the tax records and found he own...

Amalia de Fortabat, 90, Dies; Noted for Art and Scandal

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
Fortabat, a modernist museum in Buenos Aires designed by Rafael Viñoly to house her large and much admired art collection. It includes a portrait Andy Warhol did of her in the style of his Marilyn Monroe prints. Maria Amalia Lacroze de los Reyes Oribe was born in Buenos Aires on Aug. 15, 1921. Her grandfather had established the city’s first streetcar line, and an ancestor was the first president of Uruguay. Known as Amalita, she moved to Paris when she was a year old. Her first language was French, and her second was English. When she was 14, she said, a fortuneteller revealed her future: “You’ll marry a maharaja.” In 1942 she married a lawyer, Hernan Saenz Valiente Lafuente. They had a daughter, Maria Inez de Lafuente, who survives her, along with three grandchildren. Amalita was at the theater with Mr. Lafuente, her fiancé at the time, when she met Mr. Fortabat in 1941. He invited them to sail on his yacht, the Tigre Fortabat, but said he could not bear to go to their wedding. Five years later he followed the couple to Paris to ask Mr. Lafuente’s wife to dance. In recent years, Mrs. Fortabat had respiratory problems and repeated hip replacements. In 2002, she sold some paintings, including a Degas for $16.5 million. She sold the cement company to a Brazilian buyer for $1.025 billion in 2005. Last year, she sold the duplex at the Pierre for $19.5 million. For all the uproar that her divorce and marriage caused in the 1940s, Mrs. Fortabat was scandalized herself in 1997 during a literary contest that her Fortabat Foundation was sponsoring. A jury had decided to give the prize to “The Anatomist” (1998), a novel by Federico Andahazi that tells of a scientist who studies clitorises, first by examining corpses, then prostitutes. Mrs. Fortabat did not approve. She bought a newspaper ad saying the subject matter did not “contribute to the exaltation of the highest values of the human spirit.” In the end, she agreed to give Mr. Andahazi the $15,000 award that went with the prize but not the prize itself. Mr. Andahazi, who is also from Argentina, said he had chuckled at first but then felt something else, telling The New York Times, “Being pitted against the most powerful woman in Argentina sent a shudder down my spine.” ...
