This year’s Warren Haynes Christmas Jam offers up a jam-packed line-up of jam-masters, from Johnny Winter and J.J. Grey to Steve Earle and Derek Trucks, not to mention the Allman Brothers and the man himself.
Other performers include the Del McCoury Band, Joan Osborne, Robert Kearns, Michael Franti featuring Jay Bowman, Gov’t Mule, Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart and more to be announced. Go to the Christmas Jam Web site for more information.
The concert will be held Dec. 12 and 13 in the Asheville Civic Center arena and stands as one of the biggest entertainment events of the year in Asheville. Loyal fans come years after year and groove to the music, which goes into the early morning hours.
Haynes donates proceeds from the event to Habitat for Humanity. Tickets go on sale Wednesday here.
