Travelin’ Appalachians Revue tour is over and done, and don’t worry – we’ll post all about it later. Podcasts, photos, videos, all of it. But right now there’s something much more important to discus – the flooding in Nicholas, Greenbrier, Monroe, Clay, Kanawha and every other one of the 44 counties under state of emergency.
