Article Contributed by Leighton Media | Published on Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Partnering with the largest non-profits in the world of epilepsy, Candlelight Concerts for Epilepsy Awareness is proud to announce the first nation-wide epilepsy awareness endeavor – 50 Concerts in 50 States. It’s a network of coordinated live events over one weekend in March 2013.Candlelight Concerts, along with Epilepsy Foundation, CURE: Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy, Team Epilepsy and Doose Syndrome Epilepsy Alliance, are standing united to raise epilepsy awareness on this single weekend in March.At each event, volunteers will be present to distribute information regarding epilepsy (a 16 page book prepared specifically for these events), provide access to services, answer questions and raise donations – all of which will go directly to the charity of the donor’s choice.Events will vary in size from intimate house concerts with 20-40 attendees to 18,000+ seat arena shows with nationally known touring artists. Artists from all genres – classic rock, folk, jazz, singer/songwriters, orchestras, electronic, comedians, plays and more. All with the same objective, to distribute information and raise epilepsy awareness. All genres, all volunteers involved with the singular purpose to change the way the world sees and understands epilepsy.This national network of events grows out of Candlelight Concerts for Epilepsy Awareness – a webcast house concert series based in Pennington NJ. Started and run by Eric Miller, whose wife Carolina, passed away in August 2011 at the age of 25 as a result of epilepsy. Since that time, Eric has worked tirelessly to raise epilepsy awareness in her honor and in honor of all those living with or lost to epilepsy. The series has featured such amazing artists as Corey Glover of Living Colour, Eric Bazilian, Chris Barron, The Young Dubliners, Dan Reed, Mary Fahl, and many others. This network of events takes that model and raises it to a national level on a single weekend.MORE STATES AND DATES WILL BE ADDED,Please visit www.CandlelightConcert.org/50.asp for updates.3/22/13 Hering Auditorium Fairbanks AK Beau Soleil3/22/13 Sundilla Auburn AL Caroline Herring3/23/13 Moonlight On The Mountain Birmingham AL Kelley McRae3/24/13 Powerhouse Grill Fayatteville AR Various3/23/13 Scottsdale Ctr Performing Arts Scottsdale AZ Jesse Cook3/23/13 Boulder Philharmonic Boulder CO Boulder Philharmonic3/22/13 Boulder Theatre Boulder CO Great Big Sea3/23/23 Boulder Theatre Boulder CO Great Big Sea3/23/13 Ridgefield Playhouse Ridgefield CT David Bromberg Quartet3/23/13 Vitoria Station Café Putnam CT Sam Miller Memorial3/24/13 Howard Theatre Washington DC Afro-Cuban All Stars3/22/13 Grand Opera House Wilmington DE Afro-Cuban All Stars3/22/13 World Café - The Queen Wilmington DE Sons of Cream3/22/13 Ruth Eckerd Hall Clearwater FL Supertramp's Roger Hodgson with Orchestra3/15/13 Stella Blue Maui HI Hapa3/16/13 Stella Blue Maui HI Hapa3/21/13 Woolys Des Moines IA Soul Asylum3/27/13 The Knitting Factory Boise ID Donavon Frankenreiter3/23/13 Egyptian Theatre Boise ID Anjelah Johnson3/27/13 Uncommon Ground Chicago IL Emily Hurd3/22/13 City Winery Chicago IL Catie Curtis & David Wilcox3/25/13 The Granada Lawrence KS Lindsey Stirling3/23/13 Valley Grace Pikeville KY Eternity Singers3/23/13 New Orleans Arena New Orleans LA Eric Clapton3/24/13 Knights of Columbus Whitman MA Various3/23/13 Baltimore Soundstage Baltimore MD Y&T3/24/13 The Fillmore Silver Spring MD Garbage3/22/13 Stone Mountain Arts Center Brownfield ME Shemekia Copeland3/23/13 Stone Mountain Arts Center Brownfield ME Paula Poundstone3/23/13 The Ark Ann Arbor MI Steel Wheels3/22/13 First Avenue Minneapolis MN G Love & Special Sauce3/26/13 Hopkins Center for The Arts Hopkins MN The Pines3/23/13 The Pageant St Louis MO Owl City3/21/13 Underground 119 Jackson MS Kelley McRae3/24/13 Dennison Theatre Missoula MT Brian Regan3/23/13 Justice Fellowship Raleigh NC Play - Dannee White3/23/13 Lincoln Theatre Raleigh NC Minus The Bear/Circa Survive3/23/13 Party & Event Center Saluda NC Sound Investment3/17/13 Colonial Theatre Keene NH Jerrod Niemann3/24/13 Algonquin Arts Manasquan NJ NYGASP3/24/13 The Stone Pony Asbury Park NJ Paint the Pony3/23/13 Papermill (childrens) Millburn NJ Chldrens Play3/23/13 Trinity UMC Ewing NJ Jeffrey Gaines, Jann Klose & Gary Hoey3/22/13 Shea Center / Willian Paterson University Wayne NJ David Bromberg Quartet3/24/13 Candlelight Concert Pennington NJ Gary Hoey3/22/13 KiMo Theatre Albuquerque NM Jesse Cook3/22/13 The Paramount Huntington NY They Might Be Giants3/22/13 Stage 48 New York NY Y&T3/22/13 Jazz at Lincoln Center - early and late show New York NY Madeleine Peyroux3/23/13 Jazz at Lincoln Center - early and late show New York NY Madeleine Peyroux3/24/13 Wheatfield Community Center Lake Towananda NY Zach Carr & Chris Glowacki3/22/13 Ohio University Memorial Auditorium Athens OH Colbie Caillat3/22/13 The Schuster Center Dayton OH Rita Coolidge with Dayton Philharmonic3/23/13 The Schuster Center Dayton OH Rita Coolidge with Dayton Philharmonic3/20/13 Chesapeake Enery Arena Oklahoma City OK Eric Clapton3/23/13 Freehold Center Bristow OK Emily Drennan3/23/13 St Claire Ashland OR Karen Drucker3/22/13 Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall Portland OR Brian Regan3/24/13 The Fuge Warminster PA Various3/22/13 The Ritz Lancaster PA Jeffrey Gaines3/24/13 Colonial Theater Phoenixville PA David Bromberg Quartet3/30/13 Carnegie Hall of Oakland Pittsburgh PA Grizzly Bear3/23/13 Electric Factory Philadelphia PA Garbage3/23/13 Keswick Theatre Glenside PA The Fab Faux3/23/13 Sellersville Theater Sellersville PA Rockapella3/24/13 Rock Junction West Greenwich RI Y&T3/22/13 The Vault Sioux Falls SD Soul Asylum3/22/13 Bridgestone Arena Nashville TN Eric Clapton4/3/13 Private House Concert - Kelly Crofoot Slaton TX Terri Hendrix3/20/13 St Marks Episcopal Houston TX Terri Hendrix3/17/13 Warehouse Live Houston TX Tegan & Sara3/24/13 The Depot Salt Lake City UT Donavon Frankenreiter3/24/13 Stone Room House Concert Falls Church VA Danny Schmidt3/22/13 The Lyric Blacksburg VA Loudon Wainwright III3/22/13 Ferguson Center for The Arts Newport News VA Big Bad Voodoo Daddy3/23/13 Chrysler Hall Norfolk VA Big Bad Voodoo Daddy3/26/13 Higher Ground Burlington VT Todd Snider4/2/13 Triple Door Seattle WA Chris Trapper3/23/13 Paramount Theatre Seattle WA Brian Regan3/21/13 Turner Hall Ballroom Milwaukee WI G Love & Special Sauce3/23/13 Purple Fiddle Thomas WV Sarah Lou Richards3/24/13 Purple Fiddle Thomas WV Sarah Lou Richards3/25/13 Jackson Hole Center for Arts Jackson Hole WY Donavon Frankenreiter
