Festival Fever: Mountain Jam @ Hunter Mountain, 5/31-6/3/12

Led by guitarslinger extraordinaire Warren Haynes, Mountain Jam will once again take over Hunter Mountain in Hunter for four days of wonderful and wildly eclectic music, beginning on Thursday, May 31.

Naturally, Haynes’ band Gov’t Mule (or rather one of Haynes’ bands) will be headlining on the Friday and Saturday nights, but the eighth annual fest’s roster of diverse talent also includes Steve Winwood, Ben Folds Five, Michael Franti & Spearhead, the Tedeschi Trucks Band, the Roots, the Word and much, much more.
