Gov’t Mule, Los Lobos, Phil Lesh, Bela Fleck and more to come…
By Fred Mills
It’s an annual holiday tradition: the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam, held each December at the Civic Center in Asheville, NC. Today the first round of artists who will be performing at the 23rd installment of the Jam were announced:
Haynes’ band Gov’t Mule (returning to the concert stage after nearly a year’s hiatus), Phil Lesh & Friends, Los Lobos and Bela Fleck.
As usual there will be plenty more announced, and there will also be ancillary events such as the Pre-Jam Jam held the night before at the Orange Peel and assorted events in and around the downtown area. You know Uncle Blurt will be attending. Meanwhile, VIP packages go onsale Thursday, Oct. 13, followed by the regular pre-sale on Tuesday the 18th. (Full public onsale is Oct. 21.) Go to the Christmas Jam site for details.
As always, proceeds from the Haynes Jam will go to Habitat For Humanity. To date, Haynes has raised over $850,000 for the charitable organization.
