CLAYTON The third annual Clayton Country Jam is Aug. 29 to 31 at the Clayton Opera House. Featured will be tributes to the Eagles, Willie Nelson and Elvis Presley.
All acts will perform two shows each day.
The Clayton Country Jam raised nearly $20,000 for local charities in its first two years. The event was created by Clayton native Bruce T. (Mac) MacFarlane, who moved back to this area about five years ago. He has experience in organizing charity concerts in California, where he worked for a decade as special events coordinator at Interfaith Community Services in Escondido.
Mr. MacFarlane has continued a practice of donating jam tickets to local organizations. People can support these organizations by purchasing jam tickets directly from them.
Advance ticket prices for each day are $30 for VIP reserved, $25 for reserved and $20 general admission. On the day of shows, tickets are $25, $30 and $35. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.claytoncountryjam.com. Tickets are also available by calling the opera house box office at 686-2200.
