Cris Williamson Virtual Holiday Concert

By Charlotte Robinson, December 17, 2022

The legendary Cris Williamson will be presenting her Annual Holiday Show livestream featuring some faves from her 2 holiday albums Snow Angel & Winter Hearts along with some seasonal surprises on Sunday December 18th at 3P PT, 4P MT, 5P CT & 6P ET on her Facebook Music Page. Cris stated, “As the days grow shorter & the dark grows longer, let us look ahead to the return of the Light. It won’t be long now… we can endure all of it. Let us increase our compassion for ourselves & all the living world. So join me, join us, won’t you? - this Sunday December 18th for some holiday time together.” Decades before indie labels were the norm & years before women had any real access to the industry Williamson was busy changing the face of popular music. In 1975 the twenty-something former schoolteacher recorded “The Changer & The Changed” for her brainchild Olivia Records, the first woman-owned woman-focused record company. Her music & voice quickly became the soundtrack of a movement & was the cornerstone of what would become known as "women's music," music created, performed & marketed specifically to women. Today that recording "The Changer & the Changed" remains one of the best-selling independent releases of all time. For Cris the music became the vehicle for something larger. Her lyrics appear on a regular basis in books & thesis papers. Her albums are part of the curriculum for women's studies courses & thousands of people who may not even know her name join their voices in "Song of the Soul" around campfires & places of worship. She is embraced by women & our LGBTQ community.
