Marshall Tucker Band to headline Dogwood Music Festival

MOULTRIE — The Marshall Tucker Band has been announced as the headliner for the 2nd Annual Dogwood Music Festival, set to take place April 27, in Moultrie.

Michigan band, Greensky Bluegrass; Athens band, Dead Confederate; and Tallahassee’s Tobacco Rd. Band round out the main acts. The festival will take place at Spence Field, home of the Sunbelt Expo. The Dogwood Music Festival is supported, in part, by Georgia Council for the Arts Tourism Product Development Grant in partnership with the Colquitt County Arts Center and The City of Moultrie.

The lineup was announced on Saturday, Jan. 14, at a private “Reveal Party” at the Colquitt County Arts Center. Attendees were entertained with music from James Huffman and Angelie Lipscomb, Daniel Parrish, and Caylee Anna. The Moultrie Service League provided hors d’oeuvres. After playing a 30-minute opening set, Dr. James Huffman announced that local artists Caylee Anna, Heath Deloach, Soul Gravy, and Southern Parts will be kicking off the festival on the outdoor stage.

After Daniel Parrish performed, the regional artists were announced. This year, music will be non-stop throughout the day with the regional stage being claimed by the sounds of A Thousand Horses, Flannel Church, Sam Holt Band, Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, Major Bacon, and Ike Stubblefield (artist at large).

Perhaps, the highlight of the evening was an inspiring performance by Ellaville’s Caylee Anna. She seemed to wow attendees with her vocal range, performing solo on guitar and piano. At the close of this set, the main acts were announced. Dead Confederate, a band with roots in Athens, Ga., will close out the outdoor stage for local and regional acts. Tallahassee’s Tobacco Road Band will open for the Marshall Tucker Band inside the Family Living Building at Spence Field. After the Marshall Tucker Band’s headlining performance, concertgoers will be entertained with a late night set by Greensky Bluegrass back on the outdoor stage.
