Music and art should be shared and enjoyed by the entire community -- that's the message of The Leap to Flame Dream Show, a celebratory evening of music and encouragement that spans generations as it honors children, elders and the arts. The show features performances by positivity-focused group The Max Ribner Band, children's ensemble Youth Music Empowerment and the Four Winds Foundation. The Max Ribner Band is an 11-piece collective offering gospel, soul and jazz music deeply rooted in peace, compassion and healing. There won't be a dry eye in the house as Ribner then introduces the Youth Music Empowerment, a choir of empowered children ages 5 to 15 who'll perform the inspiring songs they've written themselves. The show also includes a performance by Elder Sweet Medicine, who'll offer Native American wisdom, storytelling and ceremony. Learn More

Jim Lauderdale is a multi-talented performer and songwriter, with successes in both country and bluegrass music. His roots stem from the Carolinas, yet his career has taken him all over the United States and abroad, making him an international recording artist with an ever-growing fan base. Jim won “Artist of the Year” and “Song of the Year” at the first “Honors and Awards Show” held by the Americana Music Association in 2002. Subsequently, he has hosted this same show for the last seven years.
He is among Nashville’s “A” list of songwriters, with songs recorded by artists such as: Patty Loveless, George Jones, The Dixie Chicks, Solomon Burke, Mark Chesnutt, Dave Edmunds, John Mayall, Kathy Mattea, Lee Ann Womack, Gary Allan, Blake Shelton. Vince Gill, and George Strait. He also contributed several songs to the successful soundtrack of the George Strait film, Pure Country. Not content to just write hits for the stars, he’s toured with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Rhonda Vincent and Elvis Costello, among others.
Jim’s musical influences include the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and George Jones. These influences and his unique sense of melody and lyric help forge a sound that is truly his own. He is a two-time Grammy winner, winning his first in 2002 with Dr. Ralph Stanley for Lost in the Lonesome Pines (Dualtone). His next one came for his second “solo” bluegrass album, The Bluegrass Diaries (Yep Roc 2007) at the 50th Grammy Awards! His first CD with Dr. Stanley, I Feel Like Singing Today ( Dualtone/Rebel 1999) received a Grammy nomination as did his first solo bluegrass CD titled Bluegrass (Yep Roc) from 2006.
