The St. Augustine Amphitheatre has joined with Fort Mose Historic State Park to present a series of six award-winning jazz and blues artists to appear over nine days in honor of the historic and cultural significance of Fort Mose. On Saturday, February 18, 2023, at 7:00 p.m., Fort Mose will welcome Rhiannon Giddens. 

American musician, Rhiannon Giddens, a native of Greensboro, North Carolina, has released two solo albums (Tomorrow Is My Turn, Freedom Highway), and collaborated with Francesco Turrisi in There Is No Other and They're Calling Me Home, two albums with stories of obstacles, acceptance, and the human spirit's journey from beginning to end. Recognized for using musical expressions as a means to retell history from a personal point of view, the past takes on new meaning.

The site of the Fort Mose Historic State Park is America's first legally-sanction settlement of free Africans, and was a safe destination for escaped slaves during the early years of the Underground Railroad. This series is part of the County's celebration of Black History Month and proceeds of this series will help fund the construction of a representation of the original Fort Mose, which was destroyed in 1740 during the Battle of Bloody Mose.

The Fort Mose Jazz & Blues Series is jointly produced by the Fort Mose Historical Society, the St. Johns County Cultural Events Division — which includes the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council, the St. Johns Cultural Council, and Flying Saucer Presents.
