Dar Williams and Old 97s have both announced plans to play Bele Chere.
Singer/songwriter Dar Williams lists a Friday, July 24, 8 p.m. performance time on her Web site. Known for her pop-folk style, Williams’ career was jump-started by an opening slot for Joan Baez. Baez famously recorded some of Williams’ songs.
Alt-country act Old 97s (pictured) will play Bele Chere on Saturday, July 25. Trivia: Historically, Old 97s (formed in Dallas in 1993) had a feud with fellow alt-country artist Ryan Adams. They’ve sense settled their differences. Front man Rhett Miller has toured with Neil Finn of Crowded House.
Stay tuned for updates—and if your band is slated to play Bele Chere, please let Xpress know.
