Annual Dog River Mudbottom Revival Music Festival
Apr 24 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

This year’s event is proud to welcome Willie Sugarcapps as the headliner along with The Lizards and Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet. Willie Sugarcapps is a combination of local artists Grayson Capps, Will Kimbrough, Corky Hughes and the duo Sugarcane Jane coming together to bring songwriter-in-the-round and jam session-styled collaborations. The five artists take turns singing lead and switching instruments, such as fiddle, banjo, mandolin, lap steel, bass and even ukulele. The sound is a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, a little blues, a little New Orleans and tells a story.
The music festival will benefit the Dog River Clearwater Revival efforts to protect and improve the water quality of Dog River. Sponsorships are available — call Marbury Buckhaults @ 251-458-8533 or email
The private lot hosting the event is located at 2415 Venetia Road and tickets are $25, with children under 10 getting in free. Online tickets go on sale March 15. Stay tuned for updated information.
