The Family Flood is back from its month-long break and getting ready for the next gig. We're so pleased that we've been invited to be part of the 4th annual Diamond Teeth Mary Blues and Arts Festival, which will be held right here in Huntington, WV, later this month. In preparation for the show, we're putting together a set of old and new jug band tunes, along with some material perhaps not usually heard at blues fests. For instance, here's a Frank Stokes composition from the late 1920s that was recorded blues giants from Pink Anderson to Jim Kweskin to Ry Cooder. We like the tune so much, it'll also be featured on our new CD, which will be released this fall. Here's a take from last night's Flood rehearsal.
