Bands scheduled to play before McCain are Mister Fifties, Jim Quick & Coastline, Trey Calloway and the Tim Clark Band, and vendors will be on site.
Salt Air Jam was created to grow a foundation to assist in funding research and treatment for cystic fibrosis. Eli Gilder, the grandson of event organizer Jeff Gilder, was diagnosed with CF at an early age and has been helped by care at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
CF is a disease that creates a thick mucus that affects the lungs and digestive system. It limits life expectancy and can be deadly.
