San Diego Down Syndrome introduces “The Ransom Notes”

June 2014

We know San Diego pulls out the big guns when it comes to summer entertainment. From small neighborhood street festivals to the huge Del Mar Fair, the options to have fun and listen to local music are endless. Here’s another option we came across for this weekend if you feel like making the drive up to Julian! Sibling bluegrass trio “The Ransom Notes” are scheduled for a string of shows at Wynola Pizza from 6-9pm, starting this evening and continuing at the same times on Saturday and Sunday.

About The Ransom Notes
Siblings Amanda, Michael, and Amelia Ransom are a trio of musicians that form the musical group “The Ransom Notes”. The band combines years of classical training to create a musical experience combing bluegrass music and classical. This team came into the bluegrass scene in 2008 and has continued to emerge as a highly sought after act having performed at festivals and venues around the country. Recent accomplishments include a performance for former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi at the United States Capitol. Although they are not known for having a sibling with Down Syndrome many are caught off guard when during the performance they see a person with those special features of a person with Trisomy 21.  They like to keep it that way and prefer to be known for their awards and accomplishments and not be identified in any other way.

About San Diego Down Syndrome
Opened to educate the community about individuals with Down syndrome, which will result in greater acceptance and advocate for the realization and enhancement of the full spectrum of human and civil rights for persons with Down syndrome. As well as to promote public awareness and a better understanding of Down syndrome but most importantly to most encourage partnerships between parents and medical and educational professionals concerned with Down syndrome. John Leslie started San Diego Down Syndrome in 2011 after retiring from the tax accounting business to take care of his family.  He has two kids with Down Syndrome that are his heroes. After learning much and realizing that there is no one place to get all the information out there he decided to start San Diego Down Syndrome to put in one place all that he has learned.
