Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are Indigo Girls. Rolling Stone describes them as the “ideal duet partners.… When they sing together, they radiate a sense of shared purpose that adds muscle to their lanky, deeply felt folk-tinged pop songs.” The Grammy-winning duo became overnight folk-rock stars in 1989 and have maintained that status ever since, delivering their unique brand of openhearted songwriting and lush harmonies to sellout crowds worldwide. Indigo Girls’ constant touring, as well as their staunch dedication to social and environmental causes, has earned them a fervidly devoted fan following over the years.
Opening Set by Becky Warren!
As heard on NPRs All Things Considered, Nashville singer/songwriter Becky Warrens debut solo album War Surplus relays the affecting, gritty and candid tale of the relationship between an Iraq-bound soldier named Scott and his girlfriend, June. As the story unfolds, the two meet, fall in love, and struggle to hold it all together when he returns from his deployment with PTSD. From the records award-winning lead track straight through til the last note, Warrens potency as a songwriter is on full display, as she weaves a compelling musical narrative rooted in her own life experiences and the rich sounds of Americana and rock & roll.
