Dar Williams with Chastity Brown
Sue McLean and Associates are proud to present Dar Williams live in concert at The Cedar. Dar Williams makes music that is both easy on the ears and gentle for the soul. Her 20 year career has been full of understated goodness. Without much fanfare-albeit eleven studio albums, a critically acclaimed collaboration with Richard Shindell and Lucy Kaplansky (Cry Cry Cry), two books of young adult fiction, and countless tour dates-she has crept her way into the hearts and souls of a rather large audience. She has been described as a synthesis of the Indigo Girls, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez; in fact, Joan Baez has performed with Dar Williams, as has Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin and Pete Seeger.
Dar certainly has a body of work that offers abundant evidence that she is one of the best singer/songwriters to come out of the contemporary folk scene in the past two decades, and her material – heartfelt, soul-searching, and often witty and full of fascinating detail – is exactly why the packed houses turn out again and again.
Dar has just released a bold new album In the Time of Gods, inspired by Greek mythology. LISTEN TO THE NEW ALBUM
Fresh from her stunning performance celebrating the release of Back-Road Highways, soulful songbird Chastity Brown returns to the Cedar stage with an opening set.
