Dar Williams has been writing songs and touring for over twenty-five years, drawing inspiration from her travels over four continents and from the Hudson Valley where she lives. She has recorded ten studio albums (eight with Razor & Tie Records), clocked in over 2,000 gigs, and has enjoyed teaching at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival song school, Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch, Steve Earle's Camp Copperhead and in conjunction with the music programs at many high schools and colleges. Teaching an undergraduate course at Wesleyan University about music movements and democracy renewed Dar's faith in the importance of making music and also in the intrinsic, life-affirming value of creating songs, a process she is excited to be sharing in our neck of the woods.
