Simply put, Dar Williams writes some really amazing songs. With a journalistic eye for detail and a fiction writer’s feel for nuance, she crafts luminous, sharply drawn originals full of intriguing narrative twists, vivid imagery, and deep emotion.
Raised in Chappaqua, New York, Dar wrote her first song at the age of 11. She started her performing career in the early 1990s on the coffeehouse circuit around Northampton, Massachusetts, before releasing her first album, The Honesty Room. (Joan Baez, an early fan of Dar’s music, recorded “You’re Aging Well,” a song from that album.) Her beautiful soprano voice, wonderful stage shows, and insightful, catchy songs filled with what she calls “the true line of curiosity about living in this world” brought Dar an ever-growing following and made her a major force in the New England folk scene.
Discussing the songs on her brand new album, In the Time of Gods (Razor & Tie), Dar remarks that "I'm interested in power right now. I'm in my 40s, and I’m shocked that the cafe conversations I had in my 20s about 'Somebody has to do something!' are now my responsibility . . . So the stakes are higher, in a good way."
Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Alex Dezen (of The Damnwells) opens the show.
