2016 Wire & Wood Songwriters Festival in Alpharetta

Saturday, October 8, 2016

After a great evening on Friday at Avalon, the second day of the Alpharetta Wire & Wood Songwriters Festival was even better than the first. Musicians and songwriters took to the five stages setup through the downtown area of the city to perform and tell stories. Emily Saliers from the Indigo Girls, Kristian Bush from Sugarland, Ken Block and Drew Copeland from Sister Hazel and John Oates from Hall & Oates were just some of the star power that made music in the proverbial streets on Saturday evening.

Wire & Wood for me is amazing because it’s a larger version of the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. You get to listen to some amazing musicians as they tell the intimate stories behind their songs, play some awesome music and in a smaller venue than an actual concert.
