August 11-14th 2016 Pegasus Farm, Elkins, WV
Written by Kerri Tucker
JUST ANNOUNCED: This will be the last High Land Jam, so don’t miss it! Quote from their page: “In speaking with a friend last night, she suggested we let everyone know that the 2016 High Land Jam XV will be the last festival hosted by Mark Bonnie Branciaroli and Bonnie Branciaroli on the Pegasus Farm. We did not think it important to let folks know, but she said people would want to know…. so….Yep….it’s the last one. We may still have get-togethers (and the band ZEN will still be out and about), but the High Land Jam, at age 15, has weathered like good, old barn siding and it’s now time for the tradition of live grassroots music events on the Pegasus Farm to be carried forward by younger folk. That being said, Enjoy your journey this coming weekend and we’ll see you on the Farm!!”
Summer is in full bloom and the annual High Land Jam awaits us! High Land Jam aspires to find the best undiscovered music, and bring it to you year after year.

The love and devotion of the beautiful souls putting on High Land Jam combined with the magic of the stars are sure to bring festival goers a mystical sense of collective consciousness entwined with euphoric jams.
