Come Hear NC On Songs We Love: Doc Watson & David Grisman

Doc Watson
Sugar Hill Records

We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. This week, Jacob Sharp of Mipsotells us why he loves Doc Watson & David Grisman's version of the Gershwin classic 'Summertime.'

"I was reflecting on childhood memories of what a joyous and freeing time summertime was. Though written by people who had very few relationships with the south its been brought to life by people who do and I think it really speaks to the North Carolina summer freedom.."
