Dar Williams - Live from World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington

photo credit-Amy Dickerson One of our favorites in this triple-header is long-time XPN listener favorite, folk songstress Dar Williams. Dar Williams will play XPN's Free At Noon at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington at 12:30pm.

Williams began her foray into folk while in Boston, making the coffee shop rounds and recording her own demos. Her brand of pop-inspired confessional folk soon caught the eye of folk legend Joan Baez, who subsequently recorded some of Williams' songs. Since then, Williams has released a grand total of 18 highly acclaimed releases. She's shared the stage with the likes of Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Mary Chapin Carter, and Joan Baez. And finally, she's been able to fine-tune her knack for delivering emotion on-stage.

William's latest release, In the Time of Gods, represents something of a return to her more traditional folk leanings--less pop and more pensivity. Thematically centered on classical Greek mythology, the album explores accessible narratives based on mythological personalities. Of course, it's all held together by Williams' arousing melodies and insightful lyrics.

Dar Williams will also play a full show on Friday night in Wilmington at World Cafe Live at the Queen, w/ The Milk Carton Kids.
