Dar Williams

A staple of the New England folk scene, Dar Williams wrote her first song at age 11, and to this day draws comparisons to the tremoloed vocal tones of both Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell. Williams' songwriting is by no means retro, but her soulful singing and deep, cathartic lyrics sometimes traverse into lighthearted and playful (yet cunningly witty) ditties in almost the same style as the aforementioned pair of Singer-Songwriters. Although she is a celebrated folk singer who has consistently played the festival circuit, Williams still unleashes her shimmering soprano vocal stylings in various urban coffeehouses.
