The Wiregrass Blues Festival (WBF) began in 2011 as a tribute concert to the late blues-legend and Dothan native, Eddie Kirkland. The WBF is a celebration of the incredible blues traditions from our region. Each year, we present exceptional blues and blues-inspired performances to our community. In addition to the Festival performances, we organize public presentations of local living and deceased honorees by paying homage to those that pioneered or forged a place in the music industry during each Festival season.
Our line-up always represents the unique music culture of our region. WBF performers have spent decades shaping their craft and their performances at our Festival always reflect musical excellence.
