The second annual Jam In The Trees is a two-day, Americana music-themed event in which bands perform on the outdoor stage and the more intimate indoor taproom stage. Food trucks abound.

Friday’s performances are all on the indoor stage. The lineup starts with Zoe & Cloyd, followed by Underhill Rose, then Larry Keel. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts an hour later.

Gates open Saturday at noon, and the music on the outdoor stage starts at 1 p.m. Music on the indoor stage all day concludes with an after-hours jam at 11 p.m. with guest artists from the day.

The Infamous Stringdusters close out the night on Saturday on the outdoor stage, following a performance by Acoustic Syndicate. Others performing outdoors Saturday include Front Country, Eilen Jewell, Tim O'Brien & Jan Fabricius, and Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen. Jim Lauderdale closes out the indoor stage on Saturday, following Ken Tizzard. Cicada Rhythm opens the stage for the day, followed by an afternoon set with Peter Rowan, then Jeffrey Foucault.

Kids 12 and under are free on Saturday with a paying adult. Tap Room shows at Pisgah Brewing are 18 years and up, which is what Friday night is, so no kids then.

Jam In The Trees is a benefit for Wild Forests & Fauna. Last year's inaugural event raised $5,000 to protect, restore and support threatened forests and wildlife in Western North Carolina as part of their Big Tree Project.
