Bela Fleck, Jimmy Herring, Jeff Sipe and Bill Evans Will Join Forces at Xmas Jam
Tickets for Warren Haynes Presents: The 23rd Annual Christmas Jam are already gone, making this the fastest sell-out in its history. In response, the event promises, “Given the incredible response to the line-up we’re going to give you longer sets and less changes between bands.” Still, some additional artists have been added to Xmas Jam. The most intriguing of these is a quartet comprised of Bela Fleck, Jimmy Herring, Jeff Sipe and Bill Evans (Herring was not part of the initial announcement, so here’s hoping he will revisit his stint with Warren Haynes in Phil Lesh & Friends). Other additions include Xmas jam veterans Mike Barnes, Audley Freed and Kevn Kinney, who join a line-up that already includes Gov’t Mule, Phil Lesh & Friends and Los Lobos with additional participants still be be announced.
