Folk singer in Freeport

Acclaimed folk singer-songwriter Dar Williams will perform Saturday, Aug. 8, at Discovery Park in Freeport, as part of L.L. Bean's Summer Concert Series. "With every album, I'm trying to figure out what I don't have to say, while still giving each song its due," Williams says on her Web site. Of her new album, "Promised Land," she comments: "On this one, I was paring the stories down to their core. I wanted the songs to sound simple and down to what they were meant to be, which is hard to do. It takes a lot of knowledge to get to the point where you can say what you need to say — no more, no less." The outdoor concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. Concertgoers are urged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.
