When three of our finest singer/songwriters join together in a musical ménage à trois, the least they could do is sing their own material. Yet Richard Shindell, Dar Williams, and Lucy Kaplansky have pulled off a perfect, perverse triumph on Cry Cry Cry, a tribute to fellow tunesmiths from Robert Earl Keen to Greg Brown to Julie Miller. Though the disc begins with a bona fide chart buster, R.E.M.’s “Fall on Me” (with ringing guitars and astonishingly audible lyrics no less), most of the cuts come from such unsung artists as James Keelaghan (a dark, brilliant ballad inspired by Norman MacLean’s Young Men and Fire) and Jim Armenti. All three members of this folk music dream team are in excellent voice, alternating ensemble pieces with honed call-and-response. Yet these polished, hush-inducing performances never lose their edge and urgency–this is really what they mean by harmonic convergence. –Kerry Fried

    I love Dar Williams and would love the chance to see her with Lucy and Richard plus free tickets mean extra cash to spend at The Lamp before the show.

    I have been a fan of all three for years. Saw Lucy in Carson City NV with her mother as her traveling companion and Dar many times. Richard has an awesome song about the firefighters who died in the line of duty. Such great muscians and story tellers.
