Dar Williams is an indie-minded folk-singer who has been in the business a lot longer than you probably realize.  And her new album, Many Great Companions, is kinda like a best of.  Actually, it’s more a retrospective–she reworks, acoustically, songs from her 15+ career, with alongside a bunch of truly awesome guests like Sean and Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek), Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gary Louris of the Jayhawks . . . Along with a second CD of new material.  Facebook her here, if you’re into that.  Get it on iTunes here.

Here’s a free taste:
