About this show

The holidays are fast approaching, and Cris Williamson is comin' to town for her annual December appearance at the Freight. Bonnie Raitt described her voice as "like honey on a cello" and The Boston Globe has praised her as "a brilliant composer and lyricist." Her tasteful covers and inspired originals have made her a force in the American music scene for nearly 40 years.

Born in Deadwood, South Dakota, raised in the wilds of Wyoming and Colorado, Cris recorded her first album at the age of 16. In the early 1970s, she inspired the founding of Olivia Records, and helped create an audience for women's music with her classic album The Changer and the Changed. Since then, she's gone on to make more than twenty albums and perform with such artists as Meg Christian, Tret Fure, Teresa Trull, and Holly Near. As an advocate for Native Americans, she performed with Jackson Browne, Floyd Westerman, and John Trudell on the Water for Life Tour. As an advocate for preserving the world's rain forests, she's played with Danny O'Keefe and Keb Mo. For Cris, the music has always been a vehicle for something larger, the art of the possible, the song of the soul. Experience the soulful spirit of Cris Williamson in concert at the Freight.
