For love of a lute

Original post made on Feb 11, 2012

Doris Williams was raised in the birthplace of General Motors, but the culture she experienced at home in and around Flint, Mich., was centered on music.

I highly recommend Doris to anyone who enjoys live music. Her voice is magical and it will sweep you up in the depth of the lyrics.

Doris Williams' voice is beautiful and magical! I heard her live at a performance at the Unitarian Church in San Jose recently, and I really enjoyed hearing Doris sing and play the lute! I just played her CD that I bought there: "Songs' I've Written, Songs I've sung, Songs...to touch the soul." Doris is unusual and has an unusual and special voice. Very spiritual sound.
