Warren Haynes Presents: The Christmas Jam
Warren Haynes Presents: The Christmas Jam in Asheville North Carolina USA There are people who love to do things that benefit a whole community itself and Warren Haynes, the Grammy-winning guitarist, raised in Asheville is definitely an excellent example. For more than 20 years, he has been coordinating Asheville’s annual Christmas Jam, which is similar to a re-union of family and friends with an array of music, at the Civic Center Arena located in Asheville, N.C. The proceeds of this function are donated to the Habitat of Humanity.
The event was started as an opportunity given to local musicians for jamming at this one time great celebration of the year. Recent line-ups included a rare show by Phil Lesh and friends, Gov’t Mule’s return to The Xmas Jam, Bela Flex and Los Lobos and many more.
Christmas jam in Asheville is one of the greatest live events of the country. It holds the credit of being rated by the London Times as one among the top ten concerts in the U.S.A. The most noteworthy part of it is that the post-production proceeds of this popular event go to the Habitat of Humanity, whose main goal is to provide houses to the homeless. By now, they have already given almost a million dollars in the past five years!
