In celebration of the upcoming 100th birthday of the National Park Service, the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve will begin a free concert series in the park.The inaugural performance is set for Sunday May 31st, from 2:00 pm till 4:00 pm at Kingsley Plantation.This concert features John Dickie of Collapsible B and Chelsea Saddler performing Americana and Folk/Blues/Rock.Join us at Kingsley Plantation for a fun filled Sunday in the park with music.

During a guest appearance on NPR's "Roots and Branches," Chelsea Saddler described the greatest influence on her music came from the likes of Bob Dylan and Madeline Adams;and her father who she describes as a "behind closed doors musician". As you listen to her music you can hear the soul of these influences in her "sultry, smoky voice".She has been featured at The Florida Folk Festival, The Will McLean Fest, The Gamble Rogers Festival, and made her Magnolia Fest debut in October 2014.

Based in St. Augustine Florida, John Dickie IV and Collapsible B perform original music written by John, with a few eclectic covers thrown in. Seth Lyda, writer for Ignition Music magazine wrote "When it comes to Americana Music, Collapsible B gets it. The St. Augustine-based group is comprised of some of the area's best musicians, and their songs are both authentic and catchy."

The performances are open to the public and are free of charge.Join us in the barn near the parking lot of the plantation grounds.The National Parks have been inspiring Americans for almost 100 years. Music in the Park is a natural connection between the culture, history, and natural magnificence;which is the essence of "America's Best Idea", its National Parks.
