Alpharetta’s  Wire & Wood music festival brings together nationally and locally recognized musicians to perform their original hit songs, and tell the stories that inspired them. Artists will gather together to perform their original songs giving music lovers a behind-the-scenes look at the stories that inspired country, rock, blues, Americana, and bluegrass songs. 

The goal of the Wire & Wood Music Festival is to showcase local and regional music talent that writes and performs their own original work, raise awareness about the importance of music, and highlight the many facets of the music community. Wire & Wood is part of Alpharetta’s initiative to bring more music to the community, and make it “Alpharetta Music City.”

The 2021 Wire & Wood will feature multiple stages across the downtown Alpharetta landscape including Main on Milton, Town Green and Brooke Street Park. Additional indoor stages will feature local talent in businesses supporting Alpharetta Music City’s Live Music Match program starting at 12pm.

Each City of Alpharetta special event has a main focus, and non-profit partners seeking on-site presence at the event must have a mission that aligns with the main focus of the City of Alpharetta special event. For example, if the event’s main focus is music, all partners’ mission and focus will be related to music. If an organization does not fit the main focus of the event, but wants to have an onsite presence, they may submit an application to become a sponsor of the event.

The Wire & Wood Alpharetta Music Festival kicks-off Friday night with a special performance from four-time Grammy nominee blues artist, Ruthie Foster. Hailing from a small town in Texas, the vocal powerhouse has been described by Rolling Stone as “pure magic to watch and hear.” Drawing influence from legendary acts like Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin, Foster developed a unique sound unable to be contained within a single genre. During her service in the US Navy she sang for the Navy’s band Pride. It was here that her love for performing became apparent. After leaving the service, Ruthie solidified her place as an up-and-coming singer/songwriter with ten albums including her latest album "Live at the Paramount", released in May of 2020. As Ruthie wraps her oh-so-malleable, impeccably nuanced voice around each song, the wisdom of her selections, the strength of each arrangement, their near-seamless flow and the outstanding talent of her band converge into yet another reminder that Foster’s artistry really is in a league of its own.
