A Dar Williams concert is a musical conversation with a hall full of her friends-a lovely night of music and storytelling – and musical storytelling.
Williams sings about things that are part of the human condition, and so her music resonates on a deeply personal level. Her crowd is made up of all kinds of couples who were comfortable holding hands. I saw conservatively dressed folks, and people with pink hair and tattoos. There were older fans and children, and the feeling that was prevalent was one of comfort. Everyone felt safe. Everyone felt represented and welcome. Her concerts are a rare sense of community in these trying times.
