An old blues song “High Water Everywhere” lamented the damage caused by the great 1927 Mississippi River flood.

Kentuckians so far this winter can empathize with those sentiments. Many rivers still run high, Lake Cumberland is at summer pool in January and other reservoirs are well above winter pool. The weather forecast calls for more rain, followed by wicked cold.

The spring fishing season seems eons away, but it is not. March will be here in little more than a month, bringing warm winds, a new license year and some new fishing regulations that go into effect March 1.

Delta Moon possess an instantly recognizable sound that evokes classic swamp pop, bar band blues, and roadhouse roots rock wrapped in tight, artfully arranged and hook-laden original tunes and covers.

Our Song of the Week is "Southern Gothic," the title track from Tyminski's 2017 release. The album is an artistic departure from a new group led by bluegrass mainstay Dan Tyminski, which incorporates drum loops and electronics for a modernized roots sound.

The group debuted new material from the album in Morgantown this past January.
