June 1, 2013 | World Folk Music Association Benefit Concert
Folk music fans had a rare opportunity to experience legendary folk musicians while supporting Madison House Autism Foundation at a benefit concert sponsored by the World Folk Music Association. Artists included: Tom Paxton, Noel Paul Stookey, Christine Lavin, Buskin & Batteau, and Mack Bailey. Not only was this a night of music, but visual art as well. Sixteen artists on the autism spectrum showcased their works during the show, and many of their pieces were sold at auction. It was truly an event to remember, and Madison House expresses gratitude to all of the performers, participants, and attendees that took part in making this special evening possible.
Jalynn Prince addresses the house with a hopeful message:
Watch as Mack Bailey surprises us all when he debuts his original piece, “With a Friend Like You”, written in honor of Madison House and celebrating the special bonds between Neurotypicals and Autistics. A special thanks to John Frank for filming this special performance.
