Second Sunday at Stetson's Concerts

The North Florida Folk Network (NFFN), the Stetson Kennedy Foundation and St. John's County Parks are happy to welcome the Ernie and Debi Evans Trio, some of North Florida's most versatile and talented performers, to the lineup of artists performing as part of the "Second Sunday at Stetson's" Concert Series. The three perform Sunday,  August 14, 2016 at 2PM.

Check out our Facebook event here.

Ernie Evans is a third-generation musician with the rare ability to play multiple instruments, sing lead and both low and high harmonies.  His musical vocabulary includes Jazz, Pop, and Country,as well as bluegrass.  This collective experience has made a major contribution to his ability to lead and orchestrate the now nationally touring "Florida State Bluegrass Band."

Beluthahatchee was dedicated as the only National Literary Landmark honoring two writers.
Stetson Kennedy’s friend and folksinger Woody Guthrie wrote his autobiography Seeds of Man there. Stetson Kennedy is the author of Palmetto Country, The Florida Slave, Southern Exposure,Jim Crow Guide to the U.S.A. and many other books.

Music and performers for the monthly series “Second Sunday’s at Stetson’s” align with the causes of the Stetson Kennedy Foundation of human rights, social justice, environmental stewardship, and the preservation and growth of folk culture."

Come enjoy the beauty of nature in this historical setting, and have fun while honoring the life work and legacy of Stetson Kennedy.
