ALPHARETTA, Ga. On Saturday, Nov. 9, the first-ever Wire and Wood Songwriters Festival debuted in the heart of downtown Alpharetta.

The free event offered a night of food, music and fun.

Local and nationally known musicians of all genres performed their original songs as well as some familiar pieces by their favorite artists.

Acoustic street stages lined Milton Avenue, restaurants Hop Alley and SmokeJack held intimate performances and the main Wire and Wood stage drew in guests to finish off the evening with the "Home By Dark" songwriters show.

Attendees could also enjoy a variety of gourmet food truck options, specialty beer and wine and even an open drum circle.

"I can't wait for next year's Wood and Wire festival," said area resident Kathy Wan.
