DAR WILLIAMS RETURNS TO THE OUTER CAPE
FOR A SPECIAL CONCERT TO BENEFIT
WELLFLEET PRESERVATION HALL AND WOMR!
Renowned singer-songwriter Dar Williams will be at the Wellfleet Congregational Church on Saturday, March 23 in a special concert to benefit two beloved Outer Cape organizations; Wellfleet Preservation Hall and WOMR/WFMR.
One of the most lauded singer-songwriters of her generation, Dar Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the early '90s. As documented on her album, the 2010 two-disc retrospective Many Great Companions, Williams’ growth as an individual over her almost two-decade-long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist. She has toured with such distinguished artists as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, and Shawn Colvin, and recently became a regular contributor to the Huffington Post's Green Blog.
In The Time Of Gods, Dar’s most recent recording and first album of original material in four years was produced by Kevin Killen (U2, Elvis Costello, and Peter Gabriel), and features special guests Shawn Colvin and Larry Campbell, and a remarkable set of musicians including Charley Drayton, Gerry Leonard, and Rob Hyman. Williams presents 10 original compositions on In The Time Of Gods, which explores many of today's most challenging social issues told against the parables of Greek mythology. The inimitable collection of songs includes some of the richest and most evocative writing of Williams' career.
Dar has been enjoying summers in Wellfleet with her family for years and her affection for both Wellfleet Preservation Hall and WOMR inspired her to offer a concert to benefit these two Outer Cape favorites.
