Dar Williams

Dar Williams has been a major force in the folk-rock world since the early 1990s, when she rose from the Northeast coffeehouse circuit to the national spotlight. Her career received a boost when Joan Baez recorded several of her songs and invited Dar Williams to tour with her. She’s also performed with the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin, Ellis Paul and Cliff Eberhardt. Her 1998 collaboration with Richard Shindell and Lucy Kaplansky (Cry Cry Cry) was a critically acclaimed success.

Selling over a million albums during her career, she has been named one of the most influential singersongwriters of her time by Rolling Stone, Spin and Paste Magazine. NPR’s World Café praised her “smart and serious songs with her trademark wit.”

Dar Williams recently released her tenth album, 2012’s highly praised In The Time of Gods, which ranks right up there with her best work. Dar Williams returns for this intimate performance at The Cedar.

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Willy Porter makes a welcome return to the Cedar as opening act tonight.
