Bragg Jam, Middle Georgia’s night of live music, is 24 hours away — 57 bands performing across stages in downtown Macon. Some of those bands are coming from surrounding states, like Those Darlins from Nashville. But most of the talent at Bragg Jam is home grown, like The Whigs, who are from Athens . This is the 15th year of Bragg Jam in Macon, and it’s not like other music festivals. The proceeds of Bragg Jam go to the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail-- a riverfront recreational walk.
