Dar Williams will be performing as a duo covering longtime favorites and songs from her new album, In the Time of Gods.
Dar Williams writes songs that encompass global themes but she somehow makes them feel personal. She writes songs that are deeply personal and yet their emotional impact is universal - it’s one of her many gifts as a songwriter. She can be empathetic, sarcastically funny, and intellectually invigorating without getting heavy handed. Her musical versatility gleans elements of folk, pop, and rock, blending them seamlessly into something uniquely hers. - Rosemary Welsch, WYEP Afternoon Mix Host
Since her 1995 debut album The Honesty Room, Dar has been a regular on the airwaves of 91.3fm. Songs such as "The Christians and the Pagans", "Are You Out There", "What Do You Hear in These Sounds" and countless others, have endeared her with Triple A radio audiences and Pittsburgh most of all.
Each time she's in town a stop at WYEP is a given. She was one of a number of recording artists (including Ani DiFranco, Lucinda Williams, and more) who were part of WYEP's Circle of Friends - our artist advisory board for the Community Broadcast Center's Capital Campaign AND she performed at the building's Welcome Weekend! More recently, Dar was a featured performer at our 12th Annual Summer Music Festival.
