Friday, 10/7 shows, including a kickoff concert at Avalon and more shows in downtown Alpharetta are free to the public.

On Sat, 10/8, beginning at 5pm music will be featured on five stages downtown and will include prominent songwriters such as John Oates (of Hall & Oates), Emily Saliers (of Indigo Girls), Ken Block and Drew Copeland (of Sister Hazel), Shawn Mullins, and Kristian Bush (of Sugarland).

Food, wine and beer by local vendors will be available for purchase.

Festival headliner John Oates of Hall & Oates — the top-selling duo in music history — told Atlanta Business Chronicle he is all over the map when playing the music he keys up while performing alone.

“I’m playing music from the 1920s. I’m playing songs that I learned when I was 4-years-old. I’m playing acoustic versions of Hall & Oates songs. I’m playing music from the Delta that influenced me as a guitar player,” he said. “I try to give people an overview of who I am as a musician and the kind of things that made me who I am. It’s not a Hall & Oates show without Daryl Hall — in no way, shape or form.”
