Biography

Dozens of musicians been members of The 1937 Flood of Huntington, WV, over the years since it stumbled into existence in the mid 1970s.

As writer Dave Lavender of the Herald-Dispatch has noted, “The Flood doesn’t rest on its laurels as West Virginia’s most eclectic string band. Born 25 years ago when fiddler Joe Dobbs met Dave Peyton and Charlie Bowen, the Flood has played recent gigs with everyone from the Huntington Symphony Orchestra to Marshall University tailgate parties.”

The band, which also features Doug Chaffin, Sam St. Clair and Dave Ball, plays everything from folk classics of John Prine and Bob Dylan to the blues of Mississippi John Hurt. “Throw in some Dixieland jazz, some Irish fiddle tunes, a great sense of humor, some pure mountain melodies from the likes of such state treasured songwriters as Hazel Dickens and yes by God, the best kazoo playing between here and say Kalamazoo, and you got the 1937 Flood,” adds Lavender.
