In the spirit of Dar's book, we'll have a coffee shop and open mic set up in the South Broadway library. Come early for coffee from Zendo and snacks from Bosque Baking Company. And come ready to share a song or a poem too!
Dar Williams [web site | Amazon.com] has been called "one of America's very best singer-songwriters" by the New Yorker. She's released a dozen albums and is the author of a new book, What I Found in a Thousand Towns: A Traveling Musician's Guide to Rebuilding America's Communities—One Coffee Shop, Dog Run, and Open-Mike Night at a Time. 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. She will be performing solo at this concert as well as reading from her book.
Williams' growth as an individual over her long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist, touring along the way with such distinguished artists as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Loudon Wainwright III and Shawn Colvin.
"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."
After all these years touring the United States, Canada, and Europe, having his songs covered by some of the biggest names in music, and appearing on "The Late Show with David Letterman"—the enigmatic, countrified, Rock 'n Roll troubadour, Fred Eaglesmith, is carrying on with musical wife Tif Ginn.
Eaglesmith is a veteran of the music industry and at the same time is about as far away from actually participating in today's music industry as one could be. Never operating within anyone's boundaries, he continues to set the standard for independent artists everywhere.
Tif Ginn is a gutsy, amazing singer and a transcendent songwriter who has spent most of her life touring and playing music. Her impressive, sultry vocals and glorious harmonies with Fred, along with her multiple instrument additions to the show, will have you in awe. This girl has it all, including Fred.
