  • Ooh, anonymous 1072, a bit cranky and I'm sure not a Mr. or Miss or Mrs. Excitement (I suspect a Mrs.). Ye best stay home, but do contribute!

  • anonymous_1072: Just because you don't know who she is doesn't mean others don't. If you aren't interested, your presence is not required. As the article states, Dar Williams is an internationally known singer who has sold many records, performed solo and with other musical acts, some of whom, like Joan Baez and Mary Chapin Carpenter, you might have heard of. She's a talented musician and a great person and it's a treat to have her in Frankfort. If you'd like to find out who the **** she is, you can check out her website.

  • Who in the h-ll is Dar Williams . Will there be security for crowd control ? Frankfort may have to build another garage to handle all the parking.
