Friday / November 16, 2018 / 8 p.m.
Free brown bag talk, Thursday, November 15, 12:15–1:15 p.m. Join us in the Williams Center rehearsal hall, room 123, when Dar Williams presents “How to Write a Meaningful Song.” Lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Recognized as much for her staunch progressive ideals as she is for her unfettered acoustic flair, Dar Williams holds an audience in thrall with the sheer grace and honesty of her folk-pop songwriting. Her songs, beautifully crafted like finely drawn short stories, shift from the tenderly humorous to the devastatingly poignant—The New Yorker rightly identifies her as “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters.” At the heart of Williams’ work, spanning ten albums and four books, is her belief in friendship, human connection, and the transformative power of creating music together.
Tickets: $25 (just $6 for students with ID)
Dar Williams is the 2018/19 Alan D. ’56 and Wendy Pesky Artist-in-Residence at Lafayette College.
