Hosted by broadcast veteran Randy Yohe and our own Michelle Lewis, the show, features The Flood as the house band and highlights a special segment with the evening's storyteller-in-residence, Flood co-founder Dave Peyton. In addition, each month's show will feature new and established musical acts as guest artists. Headlining the upcoming show will be two beloved area entertainers with national -- and international -- reputations:

-- Rob McNurlin was raised in Eastern Kentucky, the hymns in church, the Johnny Cash Show on TV, a harmonica from his grandmother, his parents records and a guitar on his ninth Christmas set him on a very musical path. He began studying traditional music learning hundreds of folk, hillbilly-blues and Gospel tunes. Inspired by Cash, Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams he started writing songs and mixing these originals with the traditional .Rob has released nine cds including "Cowboy Boot Heel", recorded at Johnny Cash's Cabin Studio, produced by his son John Carter Cash and a duet with guest Ramblin' Jack Elliott..

-- Kanawha Tradition featuring Bobby Taylor. Bobby is a fourth generation West Virginia fiddler who has played the fiddle for over 40 years, starting at the age of 13. He learned his music from the legendary Clark Kessinger and Mike Humphreys, both of whom lived near where he grew up in Dunbar, WV. Bobby has also studied countless American fiddle styles and conducts workshops showcasing his special blend of various styles. He retired from playing contests in 1977 to start coordinating contests for the West Virginia Division of Culture and History. Among his wins is the 1977 West Virginia State Open Fiddle Championship in Elkins, WV. This prestigious contest allowed all champions from other states to enter as well as West Virginians, drawing in fiddlers from all over the eastern United States and as far as Canada. Bobby will appear with his group Kanawha Tradition, featuring old-time banjo picker Kim Johnson.

Proceeds for the show will be donated to Little Victories, 3589 Wire Branch Road, Ona, WV. Admission will be a $5 donation.
