Also returning this year is the second annual Buffalo Mountain Jam. The first super jam occurred during FloydFest 16 after top headliner Gregg Allman had to cancel due to illness. In true FloydFest style, the festival organizers, along with help from Keller Williams and Leftover Salmon, went to work putting together an impromptu collaboration of festival artists and special guests. Last year’s super jam turned into a festival-goers delight. Jam #2 promises to be more of the same.
