Warren Haynes’ 28th Annual Christmas Jam returns on December 10, 2016 to once again light up Asheville, NC’s U.S. Cellular Center with the holiday spirit. One of the most celebrated and longest-running live concerts in the U.S., the Christmas Jam is a beloved tradition that brings together the Asheville community with performing artists, volunteers and friends from all over the country to raise funds for the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. For the 18th year in a row, proceeds from the Jam will go toward constructing energy-efficient new houses (33 houses have been built so far with 25 more on the way) as well as purchasing and developing land for entire Habitat subdivisions. To date, more than 2 million dollars has been raised by the Jam for the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity.
Today The Christmas Jam has announced the line-up: Gov't Mule, the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, Michael McDonald, Jamey Johnson + Alison Krauss and The Last Waltz Band, with the evening’s special guests Branford Marsalis, George Porter Jr., Steve Kimock, Marcus King, Kevn Kinney, Audley Freed, Bob Margolin and Mike Barnes with more to be announced.
