Warren Haynes Christmas Jam Initial Lineup Revealed

Once again, Warren Haynes will present another installment of his annual Christmas Jam at the US Cellular Center in his hometown of Asheville, NC on December 13. Today, the initial lineup for this year’s 26th annual Christmas Jam has been revealed.

Haynes will be joined by Vince Gill, Gov’t Mule, Billy & The Kids, Hard Working Americans, The Revivalists and Jason Isbell with his band on December 13 with additional artists to be announced soon. All proceeds will benefit the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity for the 16th year in a row. Haynes recently presented the organization with a record-breaking $500,000 in Christmas Jam proceeds from last year’s epic, sold-out Silver Anniversary event.

Billy & The Kids is a new group formed by Grateful Dead founding member Bill Kreutzmann with Aaron Magner (The Disco Biscuits), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) & Tom Hamilton (American Babies, Brothers Past). Kreutzmann’s only other Christmas Jam appearance took place in 2005 as part of a one-time only supergroup with Phish’s Trey Anastasio & Mike Gordon.

VIP tickets and travel packages will go on-sale October 9th. The pre-sale begins October 13th and the public on-sale begins October 17th. Stay tuned for plenty more Christmas Jam announcements in the weeks and months to come.
