"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." - The New Yorker
Dar Williams returns to Jaqua Concert Hall Thursday November 17th on what she calls An All Request Autumn
! "One of my favorite online shows was the all request one," Dar writes. "It was a lot of fun to mix the usual suspects with ones I hadn’t played in decades. Go to www.darwilliams.com/request
to select your favorites. Request the A side, the B side, the Big Hits and the deep tracks. Hopefully some of your favorites will make the list!"
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. Williams’ growth as an individual over her two-decade-long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist, touring along the way with such distinguished peers as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Loudon Wainwright III and Shawn Colvin among others.
This will be Williams' 5th Shedd appearance since 2008. It's great to have her back.
