A Lilith Fair veteran and New England folk-pop mainstay, Dar Williams continues to make achingly personal, liltingly sweet, sardonically smart music a decade and a half into her recording career. After a three-year hiatus, Williams is set to return to the public eye with her seventh album, Promised Land. Click the link above to hear Williams, recorded live in concert from WXPN and Wiggins Park in Philadelphia on July 11, 2008.

The latest installment in WXPN's annual XPoNential Music Festival offered a broad cross-section of modern music, from beloved veterans (Alejandro Escovedo, Dar Williams) to up-and-comers (The Redwalls, The War on Drugs), with a headlining performance by critically acclaimed English singer-songwriter Beth Orton.
