If you’re looking for live entertainment on your Vacation in St Augustine FL, the St Augustine Amphitheatre is the most prominent venue and performing arts center in the Old City. The Saint Augustine Amphitheatre was originally constructed in 1965, to mark St. Augustine’s monumental 450th anniversary. Located in a gorgeous area of Anastasia State Park, the St Augustine Amphitheatre was built at the site of the old St. Augustine FL quarry where coquina rock was harvested and used to construct the Fort Castillo de San Marcos. Our St. Augustine Bed and Breakfast is located just 3 miles away from the St Augustine Amphitheatre. For more than 32 years, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre performed the “Official State Play of Florida,” the Cross & Sword production, which told the story of the European settlement and founding of St. Augustine by Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles. The show ended in 1996 and the St. Augustine Amphitheatre underwent extensive restoration in 2002. Since 2002, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre has welcomed numerous artists to its stage including Art Garfunkle and Boston Concert.
The primary objective of the St. Augustine makeover was to increase its seating capacity. In addition to holding up to 4,500 concert goers, the renovations included four concession stands, merchandising area, grand plaza, arboretum, walking trails and conference room. Spend the day on Anastasia State Park! The island features beautiful beaches, walking trails, and rich historical exhibits.

“Rawlings is the most original guitar player of his generation.” -The New Yorker
“There’s nothing old-fashioned about Rawlings’ brilliantly idiosyncratic fights of guitar fancy. Nobody gets more emotion out of less volume than he does.” – Rolling Stone
“…a vivid journey through a bedeviled, bygone world punctuated by Rawlings’ mellow tenor and wicked picking, all grounded by Welch’s plaintive harmony and steady strumming.” – Associated Press
“The Dave Rawlings Machine delivers a stark and stunning masterpiece” –AcousticGuitar.com
Dave Rawlings Machine, whose rousing live show has prompted critics and fans alike to call them “one of the hottest string bands on the planet” (SF Weekly), will perform on April 6, 2016 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in support of their critically acclaimed second album, Nashville Obsolete. Recorded on analog tape at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, TN, Nashville Obsolete features seven original compositions written by Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. Produced by Rawlings, Nashville Obsolete highlights the brilliant musicianship of Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch on lead vocals and guitar, Paul Kowert (Punch Brothers) on bass, Willie Watson (formerly of Old Crow Medicine Show) on vocals and guitar and guest appearances from Brittany Haas (fiddle) and Jordan Tice (mandolin).
The beloved duo of Welch and Rawlings recently added another accolade to their career accomplishments as they accepted the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting from the Americana Music Association. The award was presented at the association’s 2015 Honors & Awards ceremony held September 16, 2015 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Nashville Obsolete marks the 7thstudio album on which Welch and Rawlings have collaborated together in their acclaimed two decade long creative partnership, including their most recent offering, the GRAMMY-nominated Gillian Welch release The Harrow and the Harvest (2011), the 2009 Dave Rawlings Machine release A Friend of a Friend which MOJO hailed as “the best Americana debut of the year” in their 4-star review, and the 2001 Gillian Welch masterpiece Time (The Revelator).

“And The War Came, the latest release by Shakey Graves, is a tremendously powerful piece of folk revival.” –SpillMagazine.com
“His onstage charisma is vibrant and magnetic” –GlideMagazine.com
Billing himself only as “A Gentleman From Texas,” Shakey Graves’ monumental rise into the spotlight has always been shrouded in mystery.
The on-stage persona of Austin native Alejandro Rose-Garcia, Shakey Graves began as a private creative outlet. His folky, esoteric bedroom recordings quickly developed a cult following, and he soon began performing live as a one-man band, with a knack for storytelling and an enigmatic stage presence that immediately draws listeners into his strange narrative world.
Graves’ first album, Roll the Bones, established the powerful, mesmerizing Shakey Graves sound of Rose-Garcia accompanying himself on guitar and a handmade kick drum built out of an old suitcase. NPR Music named him one of 10 artists music fans “should’ve known in 2012,” describing him as “astonishing…unclassifiably original. And frighteningly good.”Paste included him in a “Best of What’s Next” feature, praising his “gnarly composite of blues and folk,” while The New York Times observed that Shakey Graves “makes the one-man band approach look effortless.”
With the release of his most recent album And The War Cameon Dualtone Records, Shakey Graves has become something much bigger. Now joined on stage by a backing band, Shakey Graves is selling out major venues around the country, has appeared on Conan, Letterman and Seth Myers, taped an episode of Austin City Limits, and recently won the Americana Music Association’s “Emerging Artist of the Year” award.
