About Dar Williams

DW-photo-1-webOne 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. In The Time Of Gods, her most recent release, covers many relevant topics such as retaining one’s moral compass, our personal responsibility in changing the world, the politics of power, and following a guiding light in the midst of chaos.

Williams has toured with such distinguished artists as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Loudon Wainwright III and Shawn Colvin, and was a regular contributor to the Huffington Post’s Green Blog. A dedicated environmentalist, Williams has created the initiative “Give Bees a Camp” to create a haven of beautiful bee-friendly flower gardens at summer camps while educating campers about planting and the service they are providing for bees and our planet.
