What’s the Jam? Warren Haynes Xmas Jam

From multimedia editor Jason Sandford, who jammed with the best of em:

“The 21st rendition of the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam once again brought an eclectic line-up of music to stages across Asheville, a group of musicians that once again didn’t disappoint. Emceed by an always-appreciative Haynes, the Friday pre-Jam concert and the main event on Saturday delivered the musical goods, as well as funky collaborations that have become the Christmas Jam’s signature feature.

From Audley Freed and William Bell to Ani DiFranco and Nigel Hall, the Counting Crows, Gov’t Mule and much more, the cover-heavy tunes and the rising and falling jam vibe filled fans through the night. It all ended with everyone on stage for a 3:30 a.m. capper that left everyone full of the Christmas Jam spirit.”

Check out a photo gallery from Sandford. Watch for more photos from Jonathan Welch, and upcoming video from Jesse Hamm.
