Genre: Singer-songwriter /Activist folk
Dar Williams is a songwriter of her generation whose recurrent themes include religion, adolescence, gender issues, anti-commercialism, misunderstood relationships, loss, humor and geography. Dar is a social activist and her observations are reflected in her songs.
It’s a cliché that the personal is the political, but for Dar Williams, there really is no separating her life from her worldview. And in the face of a shifting world, she is more aware than ever of the power this approach can create. “I’m now experiencing the fruits of the alternative culture I was part of in the ‘90s,” she says. “I think I’ve made choices about how I lived my life, outside of the world that was going to fit me among the mainstream norms, and I chose to stay with my friends, to stay with my culture. “That turns out to have been the sturdiest structure I could have built for myself. And that’s in my songs, it’s in my teaching. I’m a believer in what can happen when we make music together.”
