GARDINER — Dar Williams will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, at Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center, Water Street. Doors will open at 7 p.m.

Every new album from Williams represents her thoughts and feelings about both her own life and larger forces in the world. But her ninth studio record, “Emerald,” marks a particularly dramatic confluence between her experiences and broader contemporary culture — and what it means to be a songwriter at this moment in history.

Tickets cost $42 and are available from noon to 3 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday at Johnson Hall’s Box Office or call 582-7144 or visit
