And, if you want to join in the jam session after the concert, hang around. Bring your instrument and join in. Don't forget, your voice is an instrument. Listeners are always welcome.

The Ashley Gang is our headliner. These guys (and gal) have played all the major folk festivals around Florida for years. Their original songs about Florida and its heritage will provide for a most enjoyable afternoon. Barry Brogan will open the show. Barry's been playing slide guitar for years. He'll take you back to the late 1890's and early 1900's with his rags, blues, etc.
