Warren Hayne’s 17th annual Christmas Jam will be held again at the Asheville Civic Center Arena on December 17.
This year’s line-up includes Haynes, Gov’t Mule, Trey Anastasio, Electric Hot Tuna, Audley Freed, Kevn Kinney, Ray LaMontagne, Edwin McCain, John Medeski, Ivan Neville, Dave Schools, Jon Scofield, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Marty Stuart, and Paterson Hood and Jason Isbell from the Drive By Truckers. More artists will be announced as they are confirmed.
Post-production proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity. In 2002, Haynes received the Key to the City by Asheville Mayor Worley. The benefit event raised $70,000 for the organization, selling 7,000 tickets.
Prior to the 2003 concert, Haynes gave keys to a family for their new Habitat for Humanity home, which was constructed with funds from the 2002 concert. The 2003 and 2004 events raised $100,000 each – bringing the total for the last four years over $300,000.
