Acoustic Syndicate, Peter Rowan, Larry Keel, Tim O’Brien and Jim Lauderdale are among the initial acts confirmed for the Jam in the Trees festival. The second-annual event will take place at Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, NC on August 25 and 26. Underhill Rose and Ken Tizzard are also part of the first wave of artists confirmed for the summer gathering.
JITT is a benefit for Wild Forests & Fauna (WildFF) and last year’s inaugural event raised $5000 to protect, restore and support threatened forests and wildlife in Western North Carolina. “At WildFF, our Big Tree Project that leverages outreach education and reforestation to protect forests in Western North Carolina and around the globe,” WildFF’s Executive Director Benjamin Colvin said in a statement. “Since JITT, the Big Tree Project has grown and has even sparked a relationship with ABTech and local company ArborZen to restore a razed site with over 500 native trees. We are thrilled to be a part of this and can not wait for Jam in the Trees 2017.”
