Cris Williamson has enjoyed a remarkable career in music. Back in 1975, she recorded an album called “The Changer and The Changed”, and released it on her own label, Olivia Records. Olivia was the first woman-owned, woman-focused record company. To this day, “The Changer and The Changed” remains one of the best-selling independent records of all time.

Last year, Cris released her 31st album, a two-CD set called “Pray Tell: Songs of the Soul”, with 24 original songs.

She’s in town to perform at the Women in the Arts Festival in East Lansing. Her concert tonight is part of the Ten Pound Fiddle series this year, starting at 8 at the Edgewood United Church of Christ on North Hagadorn Road. She’ll also give a songwriting workshop on Saturday.
