    Cris Williamson: The Grand Reunion

    Back-to-back concerts on January 6–7, 2023, billed as A Celebration of 50 Years of Women’s Music, were presented at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley. The concerts highlighted songs from the repertoire of the legendary singer/songwriter Cris Williamson. Joining Williamson on stage were invited artists including Barbara Higbie, Mary Watkins, Katie Cash, Julie Wolf, the duo Mouths of Babes (Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth), members of the collaborative group Skip the Needle (Vicki Randle, Shelley Doty, Kofy Brown), and additional featured guests.

    Audiences at the sold-out shows enjoyed recent compositions by Williamson as well as all of the songs featured on her chart-topping, memorable 1975 album The Changer and the Changed. The shows, which commemorated the founding of the company Olivia Records, also included appearances by author and historian Bonnie Morris, Grammy Award-winning producer Leslie Ann Jones, and Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival founder Lisa Vogel.
