************************

The Heritage Music Blues Festival began in 2001 when Bruce Wheeler envisioned a Blues music festival in a newly constructed water front park on the bank of the Ohio River in downtown Wheeling. The fact that Wheeling had no blues scene or even a blues club, band or solo artist did not deter Wheeler from developing a festival. Promoted as A Weekend of Award-Winning Blues, the Festival today gets raves from coast to coast. Wheeler's festival features two stages, a Main Stage with Blues Music Award Winners and up and coming IBC solo duo and band winning acts, and a Second Stage dedicated to local and regional artists, from WV, OH, PA, and MD.

The festival is run year round solely by Bruce Wheeler. During the event you can find his wife, Phyllis Sigal & daughter, Amanda holding down the MainGate while his son Leland, who was 12 when the event began, serves as the MainStage Manager. That Blues Family atmosphere spills over to the audience who has traveled to Wheeling, WV from 25 states and 4 countries for the last nine years for the annual August event.

Wheeler has been seen during the event doing everything from fixing fence, to being MC & host between the acts.

Along with producing the Heritage Music BluesFest, Wheeler is currently the Executive Director of the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra. Wheeler has said "I like all music, but any musician giving their all, be it on an Oboe, Bassoon, a National Steel Guitar or a Mississippi Saxophone turns me on !!!"
