Charlie Robertson and Joe Mark to perform at
Second Sundays at Stetson’s
Monthly concert program at Beluthahatchee

St John’s County, Fl. – St. Augustine singer-songwriters Charlie Robertson and Joe Mark will perform at the Second Sundays series at Stetson’s on Sunday, November 12th, 2017 at Beluthahatchee Park where author, activist, Stetson Kennedy used to live.

The concert will be indoors from 2 pm to 4pm at Beluthahatchee Park, 1523 State Road 13. Space is limited and reservations are required. Please call (904) 206-8304 and leave a voice message. A $10 donation is recommended. The park will open at 1 pm with tours of Stetson’s house and museum before and after the concert. Park closes at 5 pm.

Charlie Robertson has been a staple of the acoustic music performing community since 1971, and has never stopped creating and reaching higher to weave his lyrical tales into remarkable works of art. A native Floridian and longtime friend of Will McLean, he brings a point of view to the stage that is like no other artist.
A glimpse into the musical world of Charlie Robertson will reveal many things, such as a manic depressive mission home worker brooding over a lost love, an old Archbishop slipping into the early stages of dementia, an apocryphal father and daughter street singing duo in Coastal Mississippi, and a man returning home from a war whose only wish is to dance again with his sweetheart Corrine, to name a few. His heartfelt and subtly inventive vocals are populated with characters whose stories are told by no other and like no other.

The songs of Charlie Robertson are one of a kind type pieces that have been spread by word of mouth in whispers, shouts, and standing ovations in the darndest places from Detroit to Miami, and Chicago to Nashville, as well as countless colleges and universities. With nearly half a century of performing at quality venues under his belt, he continues to be an artist in demand to this day.

Joe Mark is a stellar singer-songwriter who has been recording his thoughts and images in St. Augustine for over 40 years. His songs are memories painted with lyrical brushes that share a love for this wonderful home. Joe has performed in clubs and festivals throughout Florida, beginning with his first performance at the long running Florida Folk Festival in 1968. He is classically trained on the guitar, and his arrangements bring a graceful background to simple words that speak of peace and love.  

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, and Jim Crow Guide to the U.S.A. and many others.

Music and performers for the monthly series “Second Sunday’s at Stetson’s” will be in line with the causes of the Stetson Kennedy Foundation of human rights, social justice, environmental stewardship, and the preservation and growth of folk culture. http://stetsonkennedy.com

The concerts are sponsored by the Stetson Kennedy Foundation, The North Florida Folk Network (NFFN) and the St. Johns County Parks.
