St. Augustine, FL (February 23, 2015) – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre welcomes the return of GRAMMY-winning group Old Crow Medicine Show with The Devil Makes Three on Saturday, May 16, 2015. The group performed at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre previously in May of 2014. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, February 27 at 10 a.m.
Old Crow Medicine Show got its start busking on street corners in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He immediately invited the band to play at his MerleFest, helping to launch their career. It’s been nearly 15 years since these humble beginnings and the band has gone on to tour the world and sell over 800,000 albums.

Sun March 29, 2015 3:00 to 5 PM City Coffee Company
A poetry reading to kick-off National Poetry Month (April) will be held on Sunday March 29 from 3:00 to 5 PM at City Coffee Company, located at 1280 N Ponce De Leon Blvd (near the Village Inn). National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration in April of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. The community is invited to share a poem or just soak in the Saint Augustine poetry scene. The reading will be held “renga style” with no emcee or sign-up sheet and will end when all presenters have had an opportunity to share. For more info find the group on Facebook, or www.bodor.org or call Chris at (904) 501.0043.National Poetry Month Kick-off: Saint Augustine Speaks Poetry Reading
