Magnolia Fest Ready To Bring Southern Hospitality To St. Augustine with JJ Grey, Keller, and More

first_imgWith this year’s Magnolia Fest making its way over to the beautiful St. Augustine Amphitheatre in Florida, not only is the festival bringing a solid one-day lineup of JJ Grey & Mofro, Keller Williams, The Infamous Stringdusters, and more, but the location is about as good as it gets. St. Augustine is one of the most beautiful towns in the country, let alone in Florida itself (purchase tickets here).With its super laid-back beach vibe (the venue is literally a short walk to the gorgeous beaches), St. Augustine also has the privilege of calling itself the oldest city in the United States, as explorer Ponce de León landed here on his journey to find the Fountain of Youth. It’s definitely a great place to spend the weekend, kick back and relax on the beach, have a few cold cocktails and delicious food at one of the many bars and restaurants along beach side, and check out some incredible music while you’re at it.With a lineup featuring Florida’s own JJ Grey & Mofro, who is from just up north in Jacksonville, you know the southern blues and rock is going to be on full display this evening. Add in the solo smorgasbord performance that Keller Williams puts on and things are beginning to heat up. The Infamous Stringdusters are one of the best bluegrass bands in the land these days, always delivering the goods at every show they step on the stage for.Rounding out the lineup will be Zach Deputy, who will provide those sweet, soulful island vibes that will sound perfect in this beach setting, in particular. English singer-songwriter Billy Bragg will bring his folky-punk pub-rock protest songs that will wake your ass up. Sara Lee Guthrie (yes, daughter of Arlo Guthrie) and Johnny Irion provide some rootsy folk to complement the rest of the lineup, while local up-and-coming duo This Frontier Needs Heroes round things up for the full day of music.For additional event and ticket information, check out the following link.P.S. Flights to Jacksonville are super cheap right now, if you are looking for a long weekend getaway to the beach and aren’t within driving distance. Just sayin’….Win A Pair Of Tickets:last_img
