Asheville, NC -- The 2nd Annual Jam In The Trees is thrilled to announce the addition of The Infamous Stringdusters to the lineup which includes some incredible acts that have already been annonced: Acoustic Syndicate, Peter Rowan, Larry Keel, Tim O'Brien, Jim Lauderdale, Underhill Rose, and Ken Tizzard. The 2017 event takes place Friday and Saturday, August 25-26th, 2017 at Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, NC. More artists are being added as the event approaches.
Bluegrass virtuosos The Infamous Stringdusters are no stranger to WNC and are excited to return with their new album Laws of Gravity, which debuted at #3 on iTunes Country Chart and #1 on the Amazon Bluegrass Chart. As first revealed on Rolling Stone Country, the new album marks a return to form for the Grammy-nominated acoustic five-piece. Laws of Gravity is all new original Dusters music--perhaps the most "Infamous" record they've done in their decade together.
Jam in the Trees has also announced the Friday schedule which starts with Ken Tizzard, followed by Underhill Rose, then Larry Keel. Doors at 7, show starts at 8pm, all on the indoor stage.
Gates open Saturday at 12pm, with music starting at 1pm throughout the day until 11pm on the beautiful Pisgah Brewing Outdoor Stage, followed by an "After Hours Jam" on the indoor stage.

VIP tickets are available for $100 and include Meet & Greets with the bands, a guided brewery tour and tasting, preferred parking, a commemorative event poster and more! Hotel and shuttle information coming soon. Stay tuned to the festival's new website www.jaminthetrees.com for more information and updates.
