Indigo Girls Schedule
They may have emerged in the late '80s as part of the folk music revival period, but the
Indigo Girls have proven they possess timeless qualities to give them some longevity while other artists from that era faded
into the background. The blend of their two distinctive dispositions and songwriting approaches boast an interesting balance.
Saliers was known for her mellow sound and complex music, and was inclined to be drawn to the spiritual and intangible. On
the other hand, Amy Ray tapped into punk rock, drawing inspirations from Husker Du, the Pretenders and the Jam. Despite their
different approaches, the Indigo Girls have managed to transcend three decades and to maintain their loyal fan base.
Indigo Girls are back on the road again, and you can catch them at venues like the Belly Up Aspen in Aspen, Colorado; Ocean
City Music Pier in Ocean City, New Jersey; Sun Center in Aston, Pennsylvania; Whitaker Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania;
