Gamble Rogers Festival – Opening Night

May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm

| $45

Gamble Rogers is an icon to players not only in Florida but across the US.  An active Gamble Rogers Society sponsors a festival every year in St. Augustine in his memory which draws aficionados from across the states.

This year, the 24th Gamble Rogers Festival is scheduled on the same weekend as the opening of Romanza Festivale.  The opening events of both festivals occur on May 3.  Three stages will feature local musicians, regional performers, national stars as well as activities for kids, student music competition  winners and story-telling.

Friday night is a night of acoustic delight featuring two champion flat pickers and a wide array of roots music including Saint Augustine’s beloved Lonesome Bert and the Skinny Lizards’ original folk songs, Remedy Tree’s progressive acoustic music rooted in bluegrass, Aslyn and the Naysayers’ melodic folk-pop, the Gabe Valla Band’s sophisticated bluegrass sound, and Bret Bass and the Melted Plectrum’s high octane flatpack guitar-driven modern take on traditional music.

The 2019 Gamble Rogers Music Festival offers three days of live music including 50+ bands on 3 stages, new Folk School workshops, & activities for kids! You’ll find them downtown May 3-5, 2019 at the historic Colonial Quarter located at 33 St. George Street in beautiful St. Augustine, Florida. Come support this not-for-profit community music festival that takes place each spring, now in its 24th year!

Advance tickets: $45 for the weekend pass until April 19th, $50 after and at the door. Children under 12 are free! Note: Single day tickets will only be sold at the venue on the day of, space permitting. TICKETS: www.gamblerogersfest.org/shop
