Dar Williams’ latest album, In The Time Of Gods, turns to a tapestry of Greek mythology in order to put the modern world’s social issues into context. She will be appearing at the Stafford Palace Theater on August 16th at 8 pm, as part of a two-year tour that will continue into 2014. A fresh, evocative voice with a unique point of view, Dar’s work has garnered praise from many critics, including The New Yorker: "Dar Williams, one of America's very best singer-songwriters... Her songs are beautiful. Some are like finely crafted short stories. They are, variously, devastatingly moving, tenderly funny, subtle without being in any way inaccessible, and utterly fresh -- not a cliché or a clunker in her entire songbook." The cool, vintage backdrop of the Stafford Palace, with its intimate seating, will make for a fitting venue for the songstress.
