Dar Williams

  • The Rubin Museum of Art 150 West 17th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Called “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters” by The New YorkerDar Williams makes her highly anticipated return to the Rubin to play songs from her latest album, Emerald.

Every new album from Dar Williams represents her thoughts and feelings about both her own life and larger forces in the world. But her ninth studio record,Emerald, marks a particularly dramatic confluence between her experiences and broader contemporary culture—and what it means to be a songwriter at this moment in history.

In the past few years Williams has been involved in a wide range of different efforts and projects: teaching a course titled “Music Movements in a Capitalist Democracy” at her alma mater, Wesleyan University; working with children at several summer camps; leading songwriting workshops; getting involved with the workings of her village; and writing a book about the ways she’s seen towns becoming more independent and prosperous over her twenty years of touring.
