Audiences throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe have thrilled to Dar Williams' unique combination of daring, powerfully felt lyrics and a captivating stage presence. Uncut UK says Williams brings "a breath of barbed and witty air to the folk scene." The New York Times has said of William's beautifully imagined writing that "wisdom flows through her songs in delirious, word rushes of truth."
Regarded by many as the independent label heir apparent to such recording luminaries as Joni Mitchel and Joan Baez, Dar Williams has three CD's to her credit, including The Honest Room, End of the Summer, and Cry Cry, a collection of cover songs by contemporary singer/songwriters Entertainment Weekly has hailed as "an eclectic, unrushed treasure trove of gorgeous acoustic covers stripped to their folk essence."
