Warren Haynes Presents: The Benefit Concert, Vol.1
Available Add to Cart
It's not an everyday occurrence that the biggest names in American rock get together on the same stage, but this was not your average concert: this is the Annual Warren Haynes Christmas Jam. Recorded on December 22, 1999 at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Warren's hometown of Asheville, NC, Warren gathered an amazing group of musicians that included members of the Allman Brothers Band (Derek Trucks, Jimmy Herring, Johnny Neel) and the Marshall Tucker Band (Paul Riddle), along with blues legend Little Milton, Grammy-nominated Susan Tedeschi, Edwin McCain, blues sensation Larry McCray and Col. Bruce Hampton (originator and founder of Aquarium Rescue Unit and The Codetalkers). This concert also reunited Audley Freed, Robert Kearns and Jason Patterson with singer Kelly Holland, completing the original Cry of Love lineup for the first time in over 5 years. All net proceeds from this series of concerts and subsequent CD releases benefit Habitat for Humanity, an international non-profit organization dedicated to building affordable housing for those in need of shelter. This legendary concert is documented on two discs impeccably produced by Grammy and Jammy Awardwinning artist Warren Haynes.
