Red Henry Band Performs At Gamble Rogers Folk Festival In St. Augustine This Weekend

The Gamble Rogers Folk Festival is underway in downtown St. Augustine. The three-day festival is named after the late guitar finger-picking balladeer who graced stages across the country with his musical ability and legendary story-telling. Rogers was inducted into the Florida Hall of Fame in the late 1990s, not many years after he died trying to save another drowning man off Flagler Beach. As Donna Green-Townsend reports, Rogers continues to influence many musicians across the country.
