The ‘Pepperland Cabin Jam & Silent Auction’ is a benefit for the Pepperland Farm Camp to raise money to rebuild one of the music camp kids’ cabins that was destroyed in a fire earlier this year. It will be hosted in Athens on November 13th at Last Call located at 420 E. Clayton St., Athens, GA, 30601. It starts at 6 p.m. and the Pepperland Kids will perform between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. during the first set. Families with music-oriented kids are especially encouraged to attend to experience the magic and talent of these rocking young musicians. The music and festivities will continue until closing time.
The ‘Pepperland Cabin Jam’ will feature performances by the Pepperland Kids, Caroline Aiken with special guests Carly Gibson and Diane Durrett, Holly Howell, High Strung String Band, Glenn Phillips, Green Bracelet, Copious Jones, The Squirrelheads and Carla Le Fever & the Rays.

100% of proceeds will go to Pepperland Farm Camp, a non-profit organization based in Murphy, NC that offers children programs in music, earth skills, and a strong sense of family on 64 acres of spiritual land. Musicians and other volunteers lend their tireless energy at the camp to teach music and these values. The Pepperland vision is that it is a life long process to provide a special place for kids to be free to play, laugh, enrich and enjoy nature. The Pepperland Music Camp aim is “to preserve and protect the natural state of the land for the kids to have for eternity by creating conservation easement with a local land trust and to provide a safe and positive growth experience for all children, especially those who are physically or emotionally challenged.”
