The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Revivalists and The Whigs to Headline 2014 Bragg Jam Concert Crawl

Gateway Macon Bragg Jam 2014(Macon, GA) Bragg Jam has announced the full lineup for the 2014 Concert Crawl. Headliners include five-time Grammy Award-winning gospel legends The Blind Boys of Alabama, New Orleans jammers The Revivalists and Athens’ rockers The Whigs. The full lineup is listed below.

"As Bragg Jam prepares to celebrate it's 15th anniversary Concert Crawl, it is difficult to find another charity event in Central Georgia that has been as community powered,” says Jamie Weatherford, President of the Bragg Jam Board of Directors. “From the all volunteer Board of Directors, to the gracious financial sponsors, to the volunteers who help the events run smoothly, to the ticket buying members of the Central Georgia community, Bragg Jam Music, Arts, and Community Festival is created by the community for the community.”

Lead funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has helped elevate this year’s line-up and secure The Blind Boys of Alabama and other lead acts, Weatherford said.

“Knight Foundation funds in arts and culture for a simple reason - to support the kinds of shared experiences that build a sense of community. Year after year, Bragg Jam does that through a community-driven event that celebrates southern traditions,” said Beverly Blake, Macon program director for Knight Foundation.

Advance tickets for the Concert Crawl, Patron Party, and Moonlight Miles are available now at www.braggjam.org. Tickets will be available the day of the event at Margaritas on Bass Road, Twang, The Hanger, and Third Street Park for $25 cash or credit, OR take advantage of our Early Bird ticket sales on our website for $20 and pick them up at any of the above locations the day of!

About Bragg Jam Music, Arts and Kids' Festival:

Inspired by late musicians and brothers Brax & Tate Bragg and operated as a 501c3 under a volunteer board of directors, Bragg Jam has now given over $150,000 back to local charities in memory of Brax and Tate. Proceeds will continue to benefit the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail and other efforts that promote nature, art and music in the community. Since 1999, Bragg Jam has evolved from an impromptu jam session to citywide music festival to a full-scale arts festival and Macon’s premier music event.
