Visionary Grammy® Award-winning artist Warren Haynes is a true American treasure and a member of three of the greatest live groups in rock history: his own Gov’t Mule, the Dead and The Allman Brothers Band (which recently played their last shows together as a band – Warren was a band member for 25 years). Haynes, named in Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and lauded as one of the most formidable guitarists and vocalists of the modern era, effortlessly cross-pollinates genres and unfurls solos that broil with passion in his distinctive, signature style. He is a beacon of creativity and excellence that inspires fans as well as fellow musicians, evidenced by the diverse array of artists that he has performed and recorded with. His legendary Christmas Jam benefit concert, which is celebrating its 27th Anniversary in 2015, benefits the Asheville Area Habitat of Humanity in Warren’s hometown of Asheville, NC. In 2014 Warren handed over a record-breaking half million dollars in Christmas Jam proceeds to the organization. The Christmas Jam is known as one of the longest running and most celebrated live benefit concerts in the U.S.
