This Week In Sugar Hill History - Riding the Midnight Train

25 years ago Sugar Hill Released the Grammy award winning Doc Watson album “Ride the Midnight Train”.
The last album Merle Watson ever played on before his tragic death, this piece is a gem in the Sugar Hill catalog. The true bluegrass sound is a template for how it should be done. With Doc’s clean and creative picking and sweet gravel vocals accompanied by the always superb Mark O’Conner, Sam Bush, and Bela Fleck this album is hard to beat. It won the Grammy for Best Traditional Folk album and holds a dear place in the bluegrass library.
Doc Watson (vocals, guitar); Merle Watson (guitar, banjo); Alan O'Bryant (guitar, background vocals); Bela Fleck (banjo); Sam Bush (mandolin); Mark O'Connor (fiddle); T. Michael Coleman (bass, background vocals).
