Smart bets: Jam in the Trees

Jam in the Trees is “a celebration of authentic roots music, community and philanthropy,” according to its president, Laurel York. The mini-festival offers a packed talent roster: Mipso, Junior Brown, The Del McCoury Band, The Wood Brothers and Savannah Smith, pictured, compose a fraction of the full schedule. Plus, a portion of proceeds will support Wild Forests & Fauna’s Big Tree Project, which aims to protect and restore “the biggest, baddest trees in Western North Carolina and beyond,” according to the nonprofit’s executive director, Benjamin Colvin. Willie Watson and Tellico start the inaugural event in Pisgah Brewing Co.’s taproom on Friday, Aug. 26, from 8 to 11 p.m. ($25), before the remaining acts, plus a raffle by Root Cause, vendors and other activities, unfold inside and outdoors, all day on Saturday, Aug. 27 ($50). pisgahbrewing.com.
