Coming Up: The 11th Annual Wiregrass Blues Festival

The 11th Annual Wiregrass Blues Festival

It’s music to our ears! The 11th Annual Wiregrass Blues Festival is coming up at The Plant on Saturday, March 23rd. There will be live music, dancing, good food and cold beer. But that’s not all!

About the 11th Annual Wiregrass Blues Festival

The 11th Annual Wiregrass Blues Festival, “Blues, Brews & BBQ,” will feature four blues bands, a backyard barbecue competition and a car show. In addition to all of that excitement, there will also be a charity bike ride, kids’ activities, arts and crafts vendors and more.

What’s more, if you purchase a VIP ticket, you’re invited to a special “meet and greet” with music by RB Stone and the opportunity to meet other festival performers. The pre-party will be at the Uptown Jazz Club and include free appetizers and a cash bar on Friday, March 22nd. But you’ll have to stay tuned for the location. 

The bands

Whether you’re VIP or general admission, get ready for a night of good music and entertainment with this line-up! In no particular order, check out the 11th Annual Wiregrass Blues Festival performers:

Selwyn Birchwood

Known for his contemporary blues style, Selwyn Birchwood was described by Rolling Stones as a “powerhouse young guitarist and a soulful vocalist.” 

Derrick Dove & The Peacekeepers

Self-described “Southern-fried rock band” Derrick Dove and The Peacekeepers recently released their second album, “Rough Time.” The album was released in October 2023 and debuted at number two on the Blues Charts, according to their website. 

Tullie Brae

Tullie Brae, a Louisiana native, has deep musical roots that stem from gospel. Today, this songwriter, singer and instrumentalist is a true force to be reckoned with! 

Ben Flournoy

As the youngest of the performers, Ben Flournoy burst onto the festival scene two years ago, and it’s been a whirlwind for the 17-year-old songwriting guitarist ever since. 


The 11th Annual Wiregrass Blues Festival will be held at The Plant, located at 308 North Saint Andrews St. in downtown Dothan. Don’t forget to check out more events coming up at The Plant and get social with the music and event venue on Facebook and Instagram for the latest announcements.
