If there's a bigger modern folk-rock success story than Dar Williams, we have no idea who it might be. A hot streak in the late 90's gave rise to "Calling The Moon" and "If I Wrote You," both now signature tunes, and set her up to become the champion of a musical school usually overrun with everymen. Her poignancy and sensitivity vary enough to make sifting through her back catalog an awkward experience at times, but contrasting "The End Of The Summer" with an ass-whoopin' like "Empire" definitely suggests that on a good day she can hit the mark at both extremes.
