Cris Williamson brings heart of holidays to PT

Posted

Renowned singer/songwriter Cris Williamson is coming to Port Townsend to perform in concert to benefit the folks working to provide food and shelter for those in need this winter.

The “Care to Share” event is set for 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10 at Quimper University Unitarian Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave. in Port Townsend. Proceeds from the event benefit Jefferson County food banks

“Holidays are always better if there is music at the heart of it all,” said Williamson in a press release. “This holiday show, all heart, all music, features original reflections upon this season.”

In 1975, Williamson recorded “The Changer and the Changed” for her brainchild, Olivia Records, the first woman-owned, woman-focused record company. Her music became the cornerstone of what would become known as “women’s music,” music created, performed, and marketed specifically for and by women, her biography states.

"She is often considered a treasure, passed hand to hand, person to person," according to the Boston Phoenix. "Williamson is a heroic character whose tireless activism continues."

Now with 31 full albums to her credit, Williamson continues to tour the acoustic circuit, adding new material at each juncture. Her performance career includes three sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall and headlining many of the great folk festivals, including Newport, Kerrville, Moab and Vancouver, according to a press release.
