Dar Williams – Live

November 20 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£12.00

Dar Williams-Live in No Alibis Bookstore

No Alibis Bookstore is proud to announce a concert with one of America’s leading singer / songwriters,  Dar Williams.

Every new album from Dar Williams represents her thoughts and feelings about both her own life and larger forces in the world. But her ninth studio record, Emerald, marks a particularly dramatic confluence between her experiences and broader contemporary culture—and what it means to be a songwriter at this moment in history.

A unique oppourtunity to hear a leading voice, musical and literary, perform in a most intimate venue.

“Dar Williams, a singer-songwriter in the folk-introspective vein, has taken a road less traveled. She has written a book about grass-roots urban renewal…[What I Found in A Thousand Towns] does remind us that walking on the wild side—which these days means taking a stroll outside one’s techno-bubble—is a trip worth taking.”

—Wall Street Journal

 

“The popular folk singer and songwriter Dar William’s new book is not another endless parade of music memoirs. Having performed around the United States for so many years, Williams writes about how she believes towns can best thrive in an age of economic and environmental struggles…. [What I Found in a Thousand Towns] reads as if Pete Seeger and Jane Jacobs teamed up, more a report from the Green party than the green room.”
