For almost two decades, the Doc and Rosa Lee Watson MusicFest ‘n Sugar Grove is where the legendary mountain musician and hometown hero Doc Watson could unwind while playing live music.

Even though Doc was more famous for his connection to the very large MerleFest music festival that took place 40 miles away in North Wilkesboro, MusicFest was where the Watson family could relax and perform for local folks and family as well as others who took the time to drive up into the mountains that the Watsons grew up in and loved.
