BBQ & Blues cranks up tonight

The 20th annual Barnesville BBQ & Blues Festival gets underway Thursday with the promise of good food, great music and a heaping helping of family fun – and there is no admission fee.

The annual kickoff party will be held Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at United Bank and will feature an evening of food, drink and mingling with other festival goers.

The music starts Friday at 5 p.m. at the stage off Library Street adjacent to First United Methodist Church and runs through 10 p.m. Horton’s MasterBlasters will take the stage at 6 p.m. followed by Lady Creech and the Main Street Band at 8 p.m. There will be food trucks on site.

Saturday’s festivities begin at 9 a.m. with free jumps in the Kids Zone until noon. The Taster’s Alley competition runs from 2-4 p.m. and food trucks will return.

Southern Creed takes the stage at noon followed by a jam session featuring various blues musicians. Big Daddy T & the 8th Street Cats will take over at 6 p.m.

Headliner Robert Lee Coleman and his band will take the stage at 8 p.m.

Soul legend Percy Sledge met Coleman, then 19, on a trip to Macon in 1964 and was blown away by the young guitarist. Coleman signed up and toured with Sledge through 1969. In 1970, Coleman joined the JB’s, a 13-piece band that backed up James Brown, the Godfather of Soul.
