After more than two decades and eight studio albums together, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, known to their legion of fans as Indigo Girls, have played thousands of shows. They've operated within the music industry, without ever being a product of that industry, gaining the respect of their peers, not to mention an extremely loyal fan base.
It's an audience that most artists would envy - one that eagerly awaits new music from the duo, and greets older songs like old friends. Fans often go to multiple shows per tour, and never leave the gig until the final note rings out, and the house lights go on.
Regardless of which way the pop culture breezes are blowing, who is topping the pop charts, who is dominating fashion
magazine covers, or who is getting played on the radio, Indigo Girls' concert experience remains a constant. Catch a show in any given city in America and you will understand the meaning of an enduring artist-audience bond that has been developed without marketing gurus, corporate tie-ins or spin doctors. Indigo Girls have thrived through flirtations with the mainstream as well as when the media spotlight was pointed elsewhere.
Most artists with a two-decade plus history have a hard time keeping audience interest when they play new songs; few would even dare to play as-yet-unreleased material, for fear of a mass-restroom exodus. Not so with the Indigo Girls.
It's true, the times do change, pop culture is always evolving, music tastes ebb and flow, but one of the few constants in rock and roll is that when the Indigo Girls play a show, or put out a record, their fans will still be there regardless of trends in the industry or weather conditions.
Whether it is staged at a campus coffeehouse or a sold-out Madison Square Garden, each Indigo Girls' show conveys their passion for fresh musical ideas, their respect for their audience and each other, their commitment to peace and social justice, and especially their unflagging enthusiasm for live performance.
Amy and Emily have bravely and faithfully committed their voices, time, and money to the issues that concern them most among them women's rights, protection of the environment, the rights of Indigenous peoples, gay and lesbian rights, and gun control creating a presence and impact outside conventional boundaries of the music world. "The most natural thing in the world for us is to marry social activism with our music because our music is so deeply rooted in life issues," says Emily.
