Let It Be Me


For 15 years now, Michelle and Charlie have looked for tunes we can harmonize on. Well, in these frustrating COVID-19 days, when we’ve not seen more than a couple of our bandmates together at one time — always outside, always socially distanced — this old

The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore


When we were growing up, the undisputed queen of Kentucky folk music was the extraordinary singer/songwriter Jean Ritchie. Memories of her cool-as-crystal-water voice singing a cappella on some mountain ballad still send shivers down our spines. Now Jean

My Blue Heaven


The heat wave has really hampered our attempts to have outdoor / socially distanced breezeway jam sessions lately. Good golly, Miss Molly — it’s been hitting 90 before noon around this here this week! But here’s a tune from a few weeks ago when Veezy Coff

Pretty Polly


As we were finishing up the picking session at the Chaffin house last night, Doug’s wife, Donna, popped in from the next room to say she felt like she ought to call our families to warn them that we were all coming home in a murderous mood, judging from s

Margaret's Waltz


When Paul Martin joined the band five years ago, we knew we had received riches far beyond anything we deserved. Paul has brought not only imaginative and tasteful playing and singing, but also loyal friendship and heart-warming good humor. It was only la

Bye Bye Blues


These days the audience for our little minimalist, socially distanced jam sessions out on the Bowen breezeway are mostly the robins and squirrels, the mockingbirds and butterflies, but occasionally a jogger or a baby stroller will pass by on the street an

Yas Yas Duck


When The Flood first started doing this song some 40 years ago and Charlie’s sweet mother asked where such an odd little tune came from, we didn’t want to tell her the truth, so he said, “Mom, it was a popular party song in the late 1920s.” Well, it wasn’

Over the Rainbow


In these days of rage, overwhelmed with a constant stream of angry and sad images from all across the country, peaceful moments are especially valuable. Lately the Bowens’ neighbors have been thanking us for moving our rehearsals outdoors, because they ca
