Flagship Romance will perform from 6 to 6:40 p.m. Friday, April 29 at the Colonial Quarter during the Gamble Rogers Music Festival.

The 21st annual Gamble Rogers Music Festival is THIS WEEK, April 29-May 1 at the Colonial Quarter, 33 Saint George St., downtown St. Augustine. Four stages will feature local, regional and national groups. See the huge SCHEDULE below, and go to www.gamblerogersfest.org to purchase tickets. Admission is $15 for the entire weekend, and tickets also can be purchased at the gate each day.

The festival honors the late James Gamble Rogers IV, a singer, songwriter, and storyteller who “balanced a love of balladry and folk songs with a passion for the oral tradition and storytelling.”

Rogers was just hitting his peak when he died on October 10, 1991, trying to save a man from drowning. The recreational area in Flagler County, where the accident occurred, was later renamed the Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area.

Headliners of the 2016 event include The Nouveaux Honkies, Richard Smith and Julie Adams, Sara Mac Band, Pierce Pettis, Grant Peeples, and the Wild Shiners.

Local performers include Sam Pacetti, Flagship Romance, The Driftwoods, The Rubies, Amy Hendrickson, Bob Patterson & Charlie Simmons as The Obscure Brothers, The WillowWacks and many others.
