2018 Jacksonville Walk for Apraxia @ The Bolles School
Nov 17 @ 10:00 am
In 2015 Flying Iguana Beverage Director, Roland Anderson and his wife Michelle Leigh started the Jacksonville Walk for Apraxia, a satellite event to raise funds and awareness for children with Apraxia of speech, a neurological challenge that requires intensive speech therapy to remedy. Al’s provides food for the charity walk and other events throughout the year, while staff from the Al’s family of restaurants participate in and promote the charity walk. Those who would like to support these efforts can sign up for the Nov. 17 event, held at The Bolles School by visiting community.apraxia-kids.org
Date: 11/17/2018
Registration: 8:30am
Ceremony begins: 10am
Walk begins at: 10:30am

Venue: The Bolles School
Location: 7400 San Jose Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32217

What is Childhood Apraxia of Speech?

While most children almost miraculously learn to speak without effort, children with apraxia struggle mightily to accurately produce and sequence sounds, syllables and words. Their understanding of language is generally much better than their ability to express it.  Weak muscles are not the problem.  The difficulty lies in planning rapid and finely coordinated movements of the speech structures (the lips, tongue, palate and jaw). For children with apraxia, their ideas are often misunderstood, not understood at all, or are left unspoken.  Childhood Apraxia of Speech is challenging to overcome. Intensive speech therapy is the only proven treatment for this rare speech sound disorder.

What is the Walk for Apraxia?

The Walk for Apraxia is our annual family event held in 70+ cities across the country. While it raises critical funds and awareness for the programs at Apraxia Kids, the heart of the Walk is our apraxia community. Walk Day is all about celebrating the lives and hard work of our kids, our Apraxia stars, who work so hard every day to overcome CAS. Every Apraxia Star attending the walk is recognized individually. The Walk for Apraxia is also a reminder to our apraxia families that they are not alone. At the walk, relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and community members surround them, creating connection and a web of support. Finally, the Walk is a crucial tool for raising awareness about apraxia among community members who have never heard of the disorder, which can make the journey less confusing for families diagnosed in the future.

“Few modern voices are as powerful as Marc Broussard’s soulful bayou-bred baritone.” – The Washington Times

“A blue-eyed soul singer with a broad, soulful voice nicely scraped around the edges. Somewhere between country and soul, he slipped through the crack which has left him coldly, and wrongly, underappreciated.” – The New York Times

Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. His father, Louisiana Hall of Famer guitarist of “The Boogie Kings,” nurtured Marc’s musical gifts at an early age, and the vibrant Lafayette, Louisiana music scene gave Marc the opportunity to practice his craft consistently from childhood through early adulthood. He still lives in Louisiana today.

After releasing a successful independent EP at age 20, Marc signed a record deal with Island Records. Marc’s song “Home” was successful on radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been placed in may TV shows and movies. Marc released multiple albums with major labels over the next 10 years, but has recently returned to his independent roots. Being an independent artist allows Marc to release more content and truly tap into his creative spirit.

Marc released a soul covers album, appropriately titled Save Our Soul 2, for charity on September 30, 2016 and donated 50% of the profits to City of Refuge. The live performance video of the acoustic version of “Cry to Me” from the album has garnered over 5 million views on YouTube.

Marc’s latest original release, Easy to Love, was released on September 15, 2017. The lead single off the album “Don’t Be Afraid to Call Me” was featured on “Rolling Stone Country” and has received significant airplay on “Sirius XM: The Highway.” Marc continues to tour in support of the album to sold-out crowds around the US and is constantly tapped to play Blues, Soul and Jazz Festivals.

Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey says of the tour, “It’s a little hard to wrap our minds around the size of some of these venues.  It suddenly feels like we are in the big league now. But we feel ready and excited to bring that positive energy and the momentum we’ve built over the past few years to the stage. This is what we’ve been working for!”

Their tour followed the release of their acclaimed sophomore album Happy Endings, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and at #7 on the Top 200 after its release. Happy Endings includes their current singles “Written in The Sand” and “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart”, which also hit #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay and MediaBase charts. This achievement marks the platinum-selling country quintet’s fourth total and third consecutive #1 hits. The band recently won the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards for “Best Vocal Group,” as well as received the nomination for “Top Country Duo/Group Artist” at the upcoming 2018 Billboard Music Awards

Together, these women will tell the story of human trafficking in Kolkata through art and conversation.

These resource centers provide a safe space for young girls and children during all hours of the night, while many of their mothers are working in the brothels. Vision for Empowerment workshops provide art therapy, job training, and an opportunity for young women to share their visual narratives with the world.

“Iris DeMent makes music that celebrates humanity’s efforts toward salvation, while acknowledging that most of our time on Earth is spent reconciling with the fact that we don’t feel so redeemed. Grounded in hymns, early country songs, gospel and folk, DeMent’s work is treasured by those who know it for its insight and unabashed beauty.” – NPR

Iris DeMent began writing songs at the age of 25. Beginning with her 1992 debut, Infamous Angel,which was hailed as “an essential album of the 1990’s” by Rolling Stone, DeMent released a series of stellar records that established her as “one of the finest singer-songwriters in America” according to The Guardian. The music earned her multiple Grammy nominations, as well as the respect of peers like John Prine, Steve Earle, and Emmylou Harris, who all invited her to collaborate. Merle Haggard dubbed her “the best singer I’ve ever heard” and asked her to join his touring band, and David Byrne and Natalie Merchant famously covered her “Let The Mystery Be” as a duet on MTV Unplugged. Her song “Our Town” is often immediately recognized as the song from the closing credits of Northern Exposure and “Let The Mystery Be” was featured in the opening scenes of the film Little Buddha and then became the theme for the opening credits of the HBO series, The Leftovers. In 2012, DeMent released the album, Sing The Delta, which prompted NPR to call her “one of the great voices in contemporary popular music” and The Boston Globe to hail the collection as “a work of rare, unvarnished grace and power.”

DeMent recently released her sixth album, The Trackless Woods, an album that sets the words of Russian poet Anna Akhmatova to music. She was also honored with the Americana Music Association’s 2017 “Americana Trailblazer Award” for her tenacity in forging her own path in the music industry.

Hailed as a “self-styled poetess, folk goddess and country waif” by the BBC, Pieta Brown first came to international attention with her 2002 self-titled debut. Pieta has since been recognized by NPR for her “moody, ethereal” songwriting, applauded by The Boston Globe for her “mercurial voice” and has continued to gain wide-spread critical attention for both her singing and songwriting with each release. Wall Street Journal, American Songwriter, and Amazon have all included her albums in year-end, ‘best-of’ picks. And along the way she has shared stages with everyone from Emmylou Harris and JJ Cale to Neko Case and Richard Thompson, in addition to performing at major festivals like Bonnaroo and Mountain Jam. But maybe even more importantly, to a fiercely independent artist like Pieta, she has received praise and support from many of her fellow artists and mentors – Justin Vernon, Iris Dement, Mark Knopfler, Amos Lee, producer Don Was, and film-maker Wim Wenders to name a few.

Make your list and check it twice! This holiday concert is more than just nice!! A Peter White Christmas featuring Rick Braun & Euge Groove is coming to town! Contemporary jazz lovers eagerly await this annual fun-filled concert which has packed fans into halls and arenas coast-to-coast year after year.

Peter White is an extraordinary and fluent acoustic guitarist whose skills are world-renowned. Over the years, he has maintained a reputation as one of the most versatile and prolific acoustic guitarists on the contemporary jazz landscape. Armed with an unparalleled combination of lyricism and energy, White combines elements of jazz, pop and classical guitar to create a sound that is singular and at the same time accessible to a broad audience. Rick Braun is a masterful trumpet/flugelhorn player whose warm tones transform the simplest melody into a work of art. Steven Eugene Grove, better known as Euge Groove, is a smooth jazz saxophonist with a strong Top-40 background. They have each separately sold millions of records and their combined fans will surely appreciate this special performance of Christmas Chestnuts!

Peter recalls: “My earliest memories of Christmas were probably not much different from many other people: snowflakes, tinsel, Santa Claus, reindeer and the opening of presents surrounded by family. As a child my father taught me to play Christmas music on my first instrument, the recorder, and my love for Christmas music has endured throughout the years. I hope this tour will be an opportunity for many Smooth Jazz fans to enjoy their favorite Christmas songs in a family setting. You know, I might even bring my recorder!” Peter White’s classic acoustic guitar style can be enjoyed through an ever-growing and best-selling catalog including his album, Playin’ Favorites (2006).

Says Rick Braun: “Christmas reminds me of the cold weather in PA where I grew up and long car trips with my family with the windows all steamy and rolled up, seeing lights in the windows of houses and then being with my dad and the whole family for turkey and football.”
