The Wiregrass Blues Society is a non-profit organization, dedicated to celebrating our rich blues heritage – both locally and nationally. Every year, with the extra proceeds raised from our annual Wiregrass Blues Fest, the society makes a donation to a local school for music instruments and programming.  In addition, the society will also present exceptional blues in schools’ programs for our area’s children through generous grants received from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
