Half Notes: Dar Williams – Promised Land (2008)

Share this:

Folk singer Dar Williams has an entry on my “Had To Sit In The Car After Arriving At Work To Get The Scoop On That Song!” list. Back in 1993, about 30 seconds before pulling into the parking lot, “When I Was A Boy” came on WERS, Emerson College radio. I was mesmerized. So I sat there through the end of the set (several songs) until the DJ thankfully revealed the artist’s name. I’ve been a big fan of Williams ever since. She’s one of those songwriters who can bring a tear to your eye with her honesty and insight.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
