Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, better known as the folk rock duo the Indigo Girls, are bringing their somber style and amazing talent to Richmond.
The Indigo Girls, known for their light-hearted Americana songs, are in the middle of an extensive tour before hitting the popular Lilith Fair festival.
The ladies are also about to release their latest album, Staring Down the Brilliant Dream, on June 29. The release is a live two-disc set featuring the most memorable moments of their shows from 2006 to today.
The CD also features personal notes written by the Girls on how they wrote each song, what they remember about that specific show, and why they selected these particular tracks.
The Indigo Girls have also been busy with their current activism for Gulf relief and fighting for LGBT rights, most recently with the FBI and Hate Crimes Prevention Act.
With a career spanning two decades and countless shows, the Indigo Girls prove that through their incredible folk sound, their songs are timeless and strong as they ever could be.
The Indigo Girls are playing at The National with Coyote Grace on Wednesday, July 21. Show starts at 8 p.m.
