Dar Williams [web site | Amazon.com] has been called “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters” by the New Yorker. She’s released a dozen albums and is the author of a new book, What I Found in a Thousand Towns: A Traveling Musician’s Guide to Rebuilding America’s Communities—One Coffee Shop, Dog Run, and Open-Mike Night at a Time. Known as much for her staunch progressive ideals as her raw acoustic energy, Dar Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the 90s. She will be performing solo at this concert as well as reading from her book.
Williams’ growth as an individual over her long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist, touring along the way with such distinguished artists as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Loudon Wainwright III and Shawn Colvin.
“Dar Williams, one of America’s very best singer-songwriters… Her songs are beautiful. Some are like finely crafted short stories. They are, variously, devastatingly moving, tenderly funny, subtle without being in any way inaccessible, and utterly fresh—not a cliché or a clunker in her entire songbook.”
