The two-day Americana music festival took place at Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, North Carolina, and featured 14 bands on both an outdoor and indoor stage.

Other performances included Acoustic Syndicate, Peter Rowan, Tim O'Brien & Jan Fabricius, Jeffrey Foucault, Front Country, Eilen Jewell, Underhill Rose, Ken Tizzard, Zoe & Cloyd, and Cicada Rhythm. Jam In The Trees strategically schedules band so that there are no overlapping sets.

In addition to music on two stages and award-winning Pisgah beer, food trucks were present on-site as well as unique vendors and local artisans. While Friday night's taproom events are 18 and up, Saturday's festivities are family friendly. Entrance is free for kids under 12 (with a paying adult) and festival goers may bring their own lawn chair. Attendees could also purchase VIP tickets for Saturday's events, which offered intimate meet & greets with multiple artists. The events included Popcorn with Peter Rowan, a Jim Lauderdale Picnic Party, and Biscuits with O'Brien (Tim & Jan); each event was thoughtfully paired with a Pisgah beer and followed by a brewery tour. Jam In The Trees also partnered with Asheville Brews Cruise to offer a complimentary shuttle service between the brewery and downtown Asheville, nearby hotels, and select campgrounds.

About Wild Forests and Fauna:

Laurel York, a lifelong resident of Asheville and President of Jam In The Trees, LLC, helped bring theidea for the event to fruition during a visit with friends from Asheville and Canada who dubbed Pisgah Brewing as a "perfect location" and felt it would attract people from all over with the right musical lineup. That started the ball rolling toward creating an event that would be a celebration of authentic Roots Music, community, and philanthropy (a portion of the proceeds will go to a local not-for-profit, Wild Forests & Fauna (WildFF), in what York proclaims as one of the area's "finest outdoor music venues".

"Jam In The Trees is shining a bright light bringing our community together in support of the Big Tree Project which focuses on the biggest, baddest trees in Western NC and beyond, that generate themost benefits to surrounding ecosystems and biodiversity," says Benjamin Colvin, Executive Director WildFF, "We all want people to go outside, get connected, get lost a little, and ACT to protect our forests for future generations!"

Jam In The Trees '17 was sponsored by Prestige Subaru and Mosaic Lifestyle Realty.
