Acclaimed American singer/songwriter Dar Williams will be appearing at the long-running Jacob’s Ladder Festival this November.

And, according to Williams’s website, she will also perform in Jerusalem, Modi’in and Karmiel during her stay in Israel. Details of those appearances have yet to be announced, and are listed on her site as “more details soon.”

Williams, who has released more than a dozen albums and is a global festival mainstay, will perform November 30 at the Jacob’s Ladder Festival at Kibbutz Ginosar. The following day she is scheduled to hold a meet-and-greet with fans as the festival continues.

The festival calls Williams “a songwriter of her generation whose recurrent themes include religion, adolescence, gender issues, anti-commercialism, misunderstood relationships, loss, humor and geography.” Her best known songs include “When I Was a Boy,” “The Christians and the Pagans” and “Iowa.”

Williams will be heading to Israel after tour dates across the United States and Ireland in the coming months. Last year, she released a book titled What I Found in a Thousand Towns: A Traveling Musician’s Guide to Rebuilding America’s Communities – One Coffee Shop, Dog Run, and Open-Mike Night at a Time.
