Santa Fe River Paddle

Sat 4/07, 10. Last year’s rains and storms have kept the Santa Fe River running high. Depending on conditions, we will attempt to paddle the 8-mile stretch above Worthington Springs.

RSVPs are required since we need to organize the boats. Let us know if you have a kayak or canoe or any extra boats you would be willing to let others borrow. If you do not have one, we will try to get something for you. Insect repellant, sunscreen, water, and a sense of adventure. We may need to make shortage portages along the route so good footwear is advisable. Santa Fe River Preserve, 27025 North State Road 121, Alachua, 32615. 352-373-1078.

Florida Soul: From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band with John Capouya

Fri 4/13, 6. Born in the era of segregation with origins in gospel, rhythm and blues, and jazz and reaching maturity during the civil rights movement, soul music is still enjoyed today and is still very much a part of our collective culture.

His book, Florida Soul: From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band, explores the story of Ray Charles’s musical upbringing in Florida, highlights the careers of Pensacola singers James and Bobby Purify and their producer, Papa Don Schroeder, reveals how Hank Ballard created his international hit song “The Twist” after seeing the dance in Tampa, and profiles Gainesville singer Linda Lyndell ("What a Man"), to name a few.
