Food For Thought
Dar Williams Talks About Her New Book
By: Philip S. Kampe - Sep 27, 2017
On Saturday night at 6pm on September 30th, Hancock Shaker Village will present its successful 'Food For Thought' series with Dar Williams as the guest of honor.
I was fortunate enough to attend the launch of this series with ex-Governor Patrick Duval (Ma) and still talk about the intimacy of the event.
Dar Williams is well known as one of America's premier singer-songwriters. She hails from nearby Hudson Valley and is promoting her newly released book (its a mouthful), 'What I Found in a Thousand Towns: A Traveling Musician's Guide to Rebuilding America's Communities One Coffee Shop, Dog Run and Open-Mike Night at a Time.'
The book focuses on unity to connect residents from small towns and all types of backgrounds and races to bond together for the good of all.
Saturday night will introduce her book. The intimate chat will focus on years of travels to small towns and what she has witnessed. A seasonal BBQ dinner will be served with bourbon and beer and a copy of her book will be included (autograph optional).
The word is that Dar Williams will sing a few songs after dinner. She is well known, having sold millions of records. Her charm is her manner-an exceptional story teller with insight and edge. She has nine albums and performs with the best folksingers of our generation.
Tickets are $125 and can be purchased by calling the Hancock Shaker Village at (413) 443-0188 or online at www.hancockshakervillage,org
