The Gamble Rogers Folk Festival has partnered with the St. Johns County Cultural Council to present a monthly series of Saturday concerts at the Waterworks, from October 21, 2023, through June 22, 2024.

These concerts celebrate St. Augustine's Gamble Rogers — songwriter, storyteller, guitarist, and recording artist — who taught, befriended, and performed with many of the performers on the schedule. Each concert will include two acts, one local to the region and one with more national or international acclaim. Any evening could include music from and by insightful songwriters, excellently told stories and tall tales, and breathtaking musicianship.

As each act is scheduled, we will add them to the list.

  • October 21, 2023 —  the North Florida Taildraggers open, followed by the Drifters, with fiddle player, Christian Ward
  • November 18, 2023 — Jordan Tice with Noan Partly
  • December 16, 2023 — John Paul White with Hadley Parrish Cotton
  • January 20, 2024 — Richard Smith and Michael Jordan
  • February 17, 2024 — Jontavious Willis. The brother and sister duo from Tallahassee, Kelly Goddard and Brian Duram of The New 76ers, will open for Jontavious.
  • March 16, 2024 — The Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley duo. Plus Larry Mangum.
  • In April, there will be no Waterworks concerts; the Gamble Rogers Music Festival will be April 12 - 14, 2024
  • May 18, 2024 — Peter Rowan and the Remedy Tree Duo
  • June 22, 2024 — Kyshona Trio

Held at the Waterworks, a renovated historic building on San Marco Avenue, each concert is limited to 100 attendees. Reservations are strongly encouraged.

When: Select Saturdays. 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The doors open at 6:00 p.m. Most shows in the series will be held on the third Saturday of each month. 

Where: The St. Augustine Water Works is located at 184 San Marco Avenue in uptown St. Augustine, Florida 32084.

While the address is 184 San Marco Avenue, the only driveway on San Marco is Exit Only. Access to the Waterworks is through the St. Augustine Main Library parking lot. (Use 1960 North Ponce de Leon in your GPS.) 

The St. Augustine Waterworks is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was built in 1898 to be a waterworks for the city. When a growing population necessitated the move to a new location, the building served time as a community center and theater and was later left unused. Now fully renovated again, this facility is accessible and has free parking, yet retains its historic architectural properties and charm.
