In March, we had the distinct honor and pleasure of informing PineCone members, friends and fans that local musician Jan Johansson had received a long-awaited heart transplant! In June, Cirlce of Friends for Jan will host another benefit music festival to celebrate Jan's recent heart transplant, to thank Jan and Theresa Johansson for all they do for our community, to thank the community for all the support they've shown to Jan and Theresa during this process, and, of course, to raise funds to help defray the family's continiuing medical expenses as Jan continues down the road to recovery.

Some of North Carolina's finest bluegrass and traditional musicians will perform, including Jan Johansson, Tommy Edwards, Joe Newberry, Julie Elkins, Danny Gotham, Lindsey Tims and David Tate. Also, please bring your musical instruments and join in the informal jam sessions. Jam groups will be invited to come onstage to perform a song or two.
