This February 2003 release is the sixth album on the Razor & Tie label from New England folk singer/ songwriter Dar Williams. The Beauty of the Rain was produced by Steuart Lerman and Rob Hyman, and features guest appearances by a remarkable array of talent: Alison Krauss on vocals, Bela Fleck on banjo, John Popper manning the harmonica and backup vocals, Stefan Lessard (of Dave Matthews Band) on bass, John Medeski on keyboards, Chris Botti on trumpet, Cliff Eberhardt on vocals and Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident) on fiddle.

Dar Williams does a wonderful cover of Richard Manuel's "Whispering Pines" on this CD, sharing the vocals with Alison Krauss and Cliff Eberhardt.
