This week on the show - Z’s conversation with revered singing songstress and deeply wise wordsmith, Dar Williams.
Coming out of the Hudson Valley outside New York City, Williams has released over thirteen albums over a quarter century as one of America’s touchstone folk poets, first bursting out of the famed Lilith Fair folk rock scene in the mid 1990s with contemporaries like Ani Difranco and the Indigo Girls and gaining a devoted following. She has toured with luminaries like Joan Baez and Patty Griffin, written a book about what makes communities resilient, runs her own songwriting retreats, and has inspired generations of women to fearlessly embrace their creativity, and exercise their limitless potential. Z was able to catch up with Williams in the green room at historic McCabes Guitar Shop before her second show of a sold out weekend. A new album is on the way.
