Doris Williams repertoire of Celtic, Renaissance, American, and Soul Searching Originals. is an ideal medium that transports her audiences to a safe, intimate and comforting place, a place that expresses our spiritual humanity – stories of love, connection, sorrow, joys and healing! Since she began singing in church as a teenager, when she sang “Waft her angels to the skies” her voice has been called “Angelic” by many many fans! One fan even said “The Angels are Silent when Doris Sings”.
“Doris Williams” has performed for over 500,000 people in over 200 venues throughout America and Europe. She started piano at 5, voice at 14, and lessons on lute at Oakland University in Michigan, where she majored in Early Music, authentic performance practices of Renaissance, Medieval, and Baroque music. After receiving her beautiful 8-course Renaissance lute from her parents, her path was set! She has since then enjoyed stages with top Celtic and Early Music performers in many concert series, festivals and stages, including Michigan Renaissance Festival, Berkeley Early Music Festival, Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Byrd and Beckett Bookstore in San Francisco, Musical Offering in Berkeley, Le Bateau Ivre in Berkeley, and countless others. Some of the great musicians and organizations she’s had pleasure to share the stage with: Peter Daldry, Claudia Gantivar, David Brewer, Ken Brown, Pat Ryan, Karl Franzen, Gary Breitbart, Kit Robberson, Jonathan Dimmock, Judith Nelson, Ruth Escher, and The Whole Noyse, Philharmonia Baroque, The Albany Consort and San Francisco Choral Artists.
