Popular during the singer/songwriter resurgence in the late ’80s, the Indigo Girls have remained active through several major label stints and are currently releasing albums on their own imprint IG Recordings. Their latest release was 2011’s Beauty Queen Sister. For childhood friends Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, a deal with Epic Records in 1989 led to their immediate critical and commercial success, and built an avid fanbase for their folk-pop sound over the next two decades. Expect hooky harmonies, intimate, personal lyrics and plenty of banter that stems from the thirty-year friendship that Ray and Saliers share.
