Folk singer Dar Williams to perform

Acclaimed folksinger Dar Williams appears at the Bates College Chapel at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 23. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at Bull Moose Records in Lewiston, Macbeans Record Store in Brunswick, the CD Exchange in Portland and at the Bates, Bowdoin and Colby student activities offices.

Over the course of three years, Williams has carved out an impressive niche for herself in the contemporary music scene. According to The New York Times, “she has the craft and heart to make the folky basics ring true again. Her songs reach beyond modest ambitions; they glow with compassion and intelligence.”

From coffee houses to concert halls, her success includes sales of more than 150,000 copies of her two critically  acclaimed albums, The Honesty Room and Mortal City. Her latest recording, End of the Summer, features a contemporary cycle of songs with complex rhythms and dazzling wordplay.
