Dar Williams has been called “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters” by The New Yorker. Known as much for her staunch progressive ideals as her raw acoustic energy, Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the ‘90s. During the course of her two-decade-long career, she’s shared stages and recording studios with distinguished musical peers such as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson, Jill Sobule, and Loudon Wainwright III.
In addition to the concert, Williams will first address a gathering of regional artists, arts presenters, economic development officials, creative economy advocates, and interested community members in Chandler’s Upper Gallery at 3 pm on Saturday June 9. Williams’ address, to be followed by a question-and-answer session, will focus on the issues and insights the artist shares in her latest 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. The book, published last fall, has drawn widespread acclaim from critics, community development advocates, and Williams’ fellow artists alike.
The afternoon forum is free but space is limited and advance registration is encouraged. To register, please contact the box office at 802-728-6464.
