Singer/songwriter Dar Williams’ first new album in four years is called In the Time of Gods, and on it she addresses some of today’s most pressing social issues through the imagery of ancient Greek mythology. The album comes out next week - but we’ll get a preview today when she plays live.
New Yorkers had a range of reactions to 9/11; some decided to leave the city in the weeks and months after the attacks, others felt the need to stay. We’ll speak with musicians Laurie Anderson, Joan Osborne, and Dar Williams about how they felt about 9/11 and their decisions to either keep living here or to move away.
We’ll also take calls from listeners, share your story below!
