Indigo Girls will stop at Taft Theatre this Thursday! The power of unity, both in music and in life, has been an Indigo Girls calling card ever since they burst into the spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since then, the band has racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and earned the respect of high-profile peers-turned-collaborators from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. Personally, some of my happiest memories are of me and a few of my girlfriends trying to harmonize just like Emily and Amy in my car.
The Indigo Girls have spent over thirty-five years performing together, and have toured arenas, festivals, and clubs the world over. It is rare to find musicians together so long, rarer still with such profound successes. Their music lives in the hearts of generations of dedicated fans and continues to inspire young musicians. This loyalty is not accidental. Perhaps their relevance over three decades can be credited to the mighty collisions of distinct aesthetics forging new paths over time.
The Indigo Girls have been consistently writing, recording and touring since 1988. After releasing nine albums with major record labels from 1987 through 2007, they have since been self-producing albums with their own IG Recordings company.
Decades into their career, the Indigo Girls still amaze with their ability to grow and thrive no matter what the state of the music industry is at any given point. The duo’s constant touring, as well as dedication to a number of social and environmental causes, has earned them a VERY devoted following over the years.
