Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Gamble Rogers IV was a folk artist known for the recurring theme in his songs and stories about characters and places in a fictional Florida county. He died a heroic death and was honored by his native state. Born in Winter Park, Florida, on January 31, 1937, Rogers was the namesake of two prominent architects. As a young man, he chose the path of a musician. While on his way to interview for a job at an architecture firm, he attended an Serendipity Singers audition in New York. Rogers borrowed a guitar, tried out, and was admitted to the group. Gamble Rogers began performing around Florida in the 1960s, often performing with other noted Florida singer-songwriters Paul Champion, Jim Bellew, and Will McLean. By the 1970s, he was a regular fixture at the Florida Folk Festival, often as the headliner.show more
