Jam in The Trees is honored to be nominated for an International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Momentum Award in the Festival/Event/Venue category for 2017! What great news to find out shortly before The 2nd Annual Jam In The Trees, a two day, Americana music-themed event that takes place at Pisgah Brewing in Black Mountain, NC on both the beautiful Outdoor Stage and the more intimate Indoor Taproom Stage Friday and Saturday, August 25 and 26, 2017.

This year's event features The Infamous Stringdusters, Acoustic Syndicate, Peter Rowan, Larry Keel Experience, Jim Lauderdale, Tim O'Brien & Jan Fabricius, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, Jeffrey Foucault, Front Country, Eilen Jewell, Underhill Rose, Ken Tizzard, Cicada Rhythm, and Zoe & Cloyd!  There will also be unique vendors and local food trucks on-site including Bun Intended, Grateful Roots, Mountain View BBQ, and DOGS, as well as award-winning Pisgah Brewing beer!

Doors open at 7pm on Friday for shows on the Indoor Taproom Stage. Gates open Saturday at 12pm, with music starting at 1pm throughout the day until 11pm on the Pisgah Brewing Outdoor Stage and inside the Taproom with no overlapping sets between stages.

Saturday night there will be an After Hours Jam hosted by Jim Lauderdale and “house band” Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen with guests Peter Rowan, Tim O' Brien, Ken Tizzard, Front Country and more. It starts around 11:30pm in the Taproom. The full schedule of music can be found at

For folks that purchased VIP Tickets, VIP Meet & Greets take place on Saturday in the VIP Area and include Popcorn with Peter Rowan (5:30- 6pm), Jim Lauderdale PicNic Party (4 - 4:30pm), and Biscuits with O'Brien (Tim & Jan) (2:30- 3pm). Each is paired with a specific Pisgah Beer for the occasion and is followed by a brewery tour.

Tickets are on sale now. The two day packages are sold out; however there are still single day tickets available. VIP tickets (Saturday only) are also available and include Meet & Greets with the bands, a guided brewery tour and tasting, preferred parking, a commemorative event poster and more! Kids 12 and under are free and welcome on Saturday with a paying adult. Tap Room shows at Pisgah Brewing are 18 and up, which is what Friday night is, so no kids on Friday night.

Jam in the Trees not only values music and community, but we also take on a responsibility to change the world for the better. For the second year in a row, a portion of our proceeds will benefit Wild Forests & Fauna (WildFF), a conservation organization that works with local communities to protect and restore globally important forests. One of their main projects, Native Seeds, is headed up by Asheville-native Georgia Beasley who has helped build the largest native tree nurseries in northern Uganda to empower traditional women healers and provide the area with medicine and food security. Last year's inaugural event raised $5000 to protect, restore, and support threatened forests and wildlife in Western North Carolina as part of their Big Tree Project.

Jam in The Trees is sponsored by Prestige Subaru and Mosaic Lifestyle Realty.

Jam In the Trees is excited to have partnered with Asheville Brews Cruise to offer complimentary shuttle service to all ticket holders for 2017! You can catch a ride out to Pisgah Brewing from downtown Asheville before the music starts on both Friday and Saturday, and catch a ride back downtown after the music ends both days! Stay safe and save money on gas!

During festival hours, the Brew Bus will be making a continuous circuit between nearby hotels and campgrounds in the Swannanoa/Black Mountain area and Pisgah Brewing Company. The ones on the route are Holiday Inn Asheville-Biltmore East, Quality Inn and Suites Biltmore East, Super 8 Black Mountain, Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground, and Asheville East KOA. Even if you just missed the shuttle, the longest you should have to wait for another is approximately 30 minutes. More information and shuttle times can be found at
