Pisgah Brewing Company is set to host the inaugural Jam In The Trees this Friday and Saturday at their picturesque venue in Black Mountain, North Carolina.
The Del McCoury Band and The Wood Brothers are headlining a stacked first-year lineup that should fit in perfectly with this celebration of roots music, community and philanthropy. Pisgah Brewing Co. has developed a reputation for putting on some of the best outdoor concerts in the state, bringing top notch acts to their beautiful timber-frame stage year after year.
They are going one step further with this event by donating a portion of the proceeds to Wild Forests & Fauna, a local nonprofit focused on protecting the vital forests of Western North Carolina.
Del McCoury is the ultimate patriarch in today’s world of bluegrass and Americana music, gracing all kinds of stages with his jovial presence for half a century now. Del is a living legend, joined by his brilliant sons Ronnie McCoury playing mandolin and Robbie McCoury pickin’ the banjo. The bass is held down by Alan Bartram, and it all comes together with the masterful fiddle playing of Jason Carter.
Two brothers who finally realized their musical fate was intertwined, Chris and Oliver Wood, together with drummer Jano Rix have created a sound like no other, establishing themselves as a staple of Americana music by inspiring and connecting with their audiences on the deepest of levels. With impassioned live performances and uplifting songs, The Wood Brothers possess an artistry and professionalism in their music that is matched by none.
Jam In The Trees has also recruited some superb North Carolina talent to join the bill, including the red-hot Mipso, Chatham County Line, Tellico, Mark Bumgarner, and Unspoken Tradition.
The weekend gets even better when you add household names such as Junior Brown, Willie Watson, The Burrito Brothers, Leyla McCalla, and of course, that famous Pisgah Pale Ale!
