Dar Williams rose out of the vibrant mid-90’s Boston scene, inspired by the eclectic influences of alt-rockers, Berklee jazz musicians, slam poets, and folk artists. The New Yorker describes her as one of America’s very best singer-songwriters. She says that her songs offer bouquets of optimism, delivered on melodies alternating between beguiling lightness and understated gravity.
Opening for Dar is Massachusetts-based “writer song-singer” Heather Maloney. Heather found music in the midst of three years at a meditation center, honing a sound moored in days of silent reflection and reverence for storytellers like Joni Mitchell, Rainer Maria Rilke, Ken Burns, and the anonymous authors of Zen parables. She has eight studio album releases under her belt, each one marked by inspiring collaborations with musicians, songwriters and producers
