Doc and 'Dawg' at Gordon Center

For an evening of earthy, down-home music, hear acoustic guitar legend Doc Watson and mandolinist David Grisman (pictured) at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave. Watson, the recipient of the National Medal of Arts and five Grammy Awards, blends his traditional Appalachian musical roots with bluegrass, country, gospel and blues. And Grisman plays music that's a blend of so many different stylistic influences - swing, bluegrass, Latin, jazz and Gypsy - that he gave it its own name, "Dawg" music. Tickets are $25. Call 410-356-SHOW.
