When Ann Wilson walked onstage to join Gov't Mule for the final set of Warren Haynes' 29th Annual Christmas Jam, she began to sing "The snow falls hard and don't you know? The winds of Thor are blowing cold."
Warren Haynes truly is one of the good guys in the music industry. His 29th annual Christmas Jam with its star-studded lineup blew the roof off Asheville, North Carolina’s U.S. Cellular Center on Saturday, December 9, 2017, despite the snowstorm that transformed the city into a treacherous yet beautiful winter wonderland.
A snow and ice storm in the Asheville area got the 29th Annual Warren Haynes Christmas Jam weekend off to a shaky start, with the traditional Pre-Jam event at Asheville’s Orange Peel sadly cancelled. But not even Mother Nature can put a damper on one of the most reliably great traditions in our scene
The Asheville native’s annual Christmas Jam, now in its 29th year, returns to the US Cellular Center at 7 p.m. Dec. 9 (it's been sold out for some time). As befits the season, Haynes donates proceeds from the event to Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity; this year’s jam supports a new 21-house community in Arden.
