We have partnered with the St. Johns Cultural Council to present "Live from The Waterworks: A Gamble Rogers Concert Series." Celebrate the legendary recording artist Gamble Rogers whose balladry and storytelling shaped American folk music. On the third Saturday of each month, a local musician will open for a nationally known act at The Waterworks (184 San Marco Avenue), built in 1898 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. GET TICKETS HERE 

On October 22, Ruth Wyand and Doyle Dykes will perform at the inaugural concert. Doors at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets will be available soon. Only 100 seats available for this very special performance. Ticket fees will go to the nonprofit Gamble Rogers Music Festival.

Beloved raconteur, environmentalist, and down-home philosopher, Gamble Rogers (1937–1991) ushered in a renaissance of folk music to a place and time that desperately needed it. In this book, Bruce Horovitz tells the story of how Rogers infused Florida's rapidly commercializing landscape with a refreshing dose of homegrown authenticity and how his distinctive music and personality touched the nation.
