Throughout her career, acclaimed singer-songwriter Dar Williams has been known to lend her voice to charitable causes. This Friday, she’ll be doing exactly that when she performs at a benefit concert for Triform Camphill Community in Hudson.

The plight of children in need are of particular concern to the Beacon-based Williams; when I spoke to her for a June 2011 feature, she and her husband were in the process of adopting an orphaned child from overseas. So it’s natural that she’d be enthusiastic about helping Triform, a residential and therapeutic community for young adults with special needs. The program will also feature the Triform Bell Choir, which is made up of Triform students. Proceeds from this event generate much-needed funds to help the community with various initiatives.

Here, she sings “Iowa” live in England this past May:

Dar Williams will perform at Triform Camphill Community’s Phoenix Center in Hudson, New York, on June 24 at 7pm. Tickets are $75. For more information, call (518) 851-9320 ext 13 or visit www.triform.org.
