Blind Boys of Alabama to feature on Warren Haynes Annual Christmas Jam!

The Blind Boys of Alabama are pleased to announce our involvement with the 24th Annual Christmas Jam presented by Warren Haynes! Check out the press release below:
BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA, SHERYL CROW, THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT & WARREN HAYNES BAND AMONG PERFORMERS AT THE 24th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS JAM

We are proud to announce the line-up for Warren Haynes Presents: The 24th Annual Christmas Jam which will take place at The U.S. Cellular Center Asheville (formerly The Asheville Civic Center) on Saturday December 15, 2012.   All net proceeds from the event and all Xmas Jam weekend event benefit Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity.


Warren Haynes will perform with both his Warren Haynes Band and also offer up a very special set along with the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama.  Sheryl Crow will make her first Xmas Jam appearance performing with her band which includes Xmas Jam “regulars” Audley Freed, Robert Kearns and Fred Eltringham.  We’re super excited to finally be welcoming The String Cheese Incident to the Jam (mandolin player Michael Kang came as a special guest musician in 2003 but this will be SCI’s first appearance) as well as  Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue who will surely raise the roof with their high energy “supafunkrock.”  The Christmas Jam wouldn’t be Christmas Jam without Special Guests… Kevn Kinney, Anders Osborne and more will be sitting in over the course of the night.  You can keep up to date on the line up and be the first to find out artist additions by Liking the Christmas Jam on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/xmasjam  on Following on Twitter @xmasjam. http://www.twitter.com/xmasjam
