Tour name: DAR WILLIAMS @ THE RUBY LOUNGE
"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." New Yorker
"Known for her lyrical, evocative songwriting and singing…Ms. Williams has been a leading figure in the folk-rock world for nearly 20 yrs." Wall Street Journal
"Seasons change, but Williams remains both ambitious and pleasingly plainspoken." Rolling Stone
"A new generation of pop-folk enthusiasts lauds her as one of the genre's central figures." Paste
"One of our most thoughtful singer-songwriters." New York Daily News
In The Time Of Gods, Dar’s 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.
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.
