Laurel York, a lifelong resident of Asheville and President of Jam In The Trees, LLC, helped bring the idea for the event to fruition during a visit with friends from Asheville and Canada that “mentioned Pisgah Brewing is a perfect location and felt it would attract people from all over with the right musical lineup. That started the ball rolling toward creating an event that would be a celebration of authentic Roots Music, community, and philanthropy (a portion of the proceeds will go to a local not-for-profit, Wild Forests & Fauna (WildFF), in one of the area’s finest outdoor music venues” said York.
“Jam in the Trees is shining a bright light bringing our community together in support of the Big Tree Project which focuses on the biggest, baddest trees in Western NC and beyond, that generate the most benefits to surrounding ecosystems and biodiversity.” Benjamin Colvin, Executive Director WildFF, goes on to say, “Del McCoury Band, the Wood Brothers and this whole lineup connects in spirit with WildFF... we all want people to go outside, get connected, get lost a little, and ACT to protect our forests for future generations!”
Jam In The Trees and Pisgah Brewing will deliver award-winning musicians, exquisite local food offerings, VIP events with the artists, and down-home fun, celebrating authentic roots and Americana music in a setting that will be as much a part of the festival as a the all-star Americana lineup showcasing acoustic and electric music which encompasses various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, and rhythm and blues.
“We are extremely pleased to be working to bring Jam In The Trees to Pisgah Brewing. Those that attend our events know that we treat our attendee’s right and the music is always top notch. This event will be no different. Come join us for a fun event next August and get your tickets early as we expect this to sell out quickly once the additional artists are announced!” said Benton Wharton, the Events Manager for Pisgah Brewing.
