Crosby, Stills & Nash, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Rickie Lee Jones and former Eagles guitarist Don Felder top the list of musicians taking part in a benefit for Autism Speaks on April 13 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Actor-comedian Jack Black will emcee.
The Light Up the Blues concert is being spearheaded by Stills and his wife, Kristen, who have an autistic son. Stills previously has enlisted longtime cohorts David Crosby and Graham Nash for other Autism Speaks events. Tickets are $38.50 to $125, with proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks, the 8-year-old advocacy organization with offices in Los Angeles, New York and Princeton, N.J.
The event aims to highlight Autism Speaks’ Light It Up Blue annual global awareness and fundraising campaign going on throughout April. April 2 is designated as World Autism Awareness Day.
