The folk rock band Time Sawyer will be performing a benefit concert at Sparky's Coffeehouse in Sparta, North Carolina. The band is expected to play several songs off their newest album, Disguise the Limits, to be released March 1. The members of Time Sawyer hail from Elkin, NC, and are now based in Charlotte. The concert is a fundraiser for Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST). Admission is free, but donations will be accepted for FAST, a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

Angelman Syndrome (or AS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting approximately 1 in 15,000 live births. AS is characterized by profound developmental delays, problems with motor coordination and balance, and epilepsy. Individuals with AS do not develop functional speech; however, some parents have reported limited word approximations. The seizure disorder in individuals with AS can be difficult to treat. Feeding disorders in infancy are common and some persist throughout childhood. Sleeping difficulties are commonly noted in individuals with AS. AS affects all races and both genders equally.
