A Benefit Concert for Triform Camphill Community|
featuring singer-songwriter Dar Williams and the Triform Bell Choir.
Dar Williams is an American singer-songwriter specializing in pop folk. Hendrik Hertzberg of the The New Yorker has described Williams as "one of Americas very best singer-songwriters."
She is a frequent performer at folk festivals and has toured with such artists as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin, Girlyman, Joan Baez, and Catie Curtis.
Williams began playing the guitar at age nine and wrote her first song two years later. In 1990, Dar recorded her first album, "I Have No History" produced by Jeannie Deva and engineered by Rob Lehmann at Oak Grove Studios in Malden, MA. Early in Williams's music career, she opened for Joan Baez, who recorded some of her songs (Williams also did a duet with Baez on Ring Them Bells).
In 1998, Williams, Richard Shindell and Lucy Kaplansky formed the group Cry Cry Cry as a way to pay homage to some of their favorite folk artists. The band released an eponymous album of covers and toured from 1998 to 2000.
She has since released six more studio albums on the Razor & Tie label (The Green World (2000; which included "Spring Street", based on Spring Street in SoHo in Manhattan),[;6]; The Beauty of the Rain (2003), My Better Self (2005), Promised Land (2008)), Many Great Companions (2010), and In the Time of Gods (2012), as well as two live albums (Out There Live (2001) and Live at Bearsville Theater (2007)).
