The Candlelight Concert for Epilepsy Awareness is a fundraising concert series to raise awareness and spread the facts about epilepsy. Currently, the house concert series is in Pennington NJ and open to a very limited number of guests (40 per show.) The shows are also streamed online using StageIt.com, with proceeds going to various epilepsy charities.
With eight albums and an average of 200 shows per year since the early 1990s under the belt, the hard-rocking Irish band, The Young Dubliners owe everything to their fans. "They keep us honest, expecting good music both on the road and on the albums," mentions frontman Keith Roberts.
Building a fervent fan base comparable to that of jam band rockers like Phish and Dave Matthews Band, The Young Dubliners have over the years become notorious for the whirling jig pits that erupt at their live shows. Keith Roberts and Paul O'Toole first met on L.A.'s vibrant pub scene circa late 80s at a time when Roberts was composing some Irish ballads and thought casually about assembling a rag-tag team of fellow Irish transplants and like-minded American rockers. From their humble beginnings, the band evolved through various personnel changes into a pugnacious, crazy but coolly irresistible force of nature.
These guys are truly wonderful and are going to blow the roof off of the house!
