Folk/Rock Icons Indigo Girls Announce Summer Tour

The Grammy-winning duo will be hitting the road as a 7-piece band this summer

Support acts include Larkin Poe, Kevn Kinney, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Garrison Starr, Neko Case and more
May 17, 2023: Folk icons the Indigo Girls have something special in store for fans this summer; they’ll be touring as a 7-piece for the full band experience. Along with longtime stalwart Lyris Hung (violin), the band will include drummer Brady Blade (Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller), guitarist Jeff Fielder (Mark Lanegan, Amy Ray Band), bassist Clare Kenny(Sinead O’Connor, Edwyn Collins), and Carol Isaacs (Sinead O’Connor,) on keys. Kicking off in the Northeast in June, the tour will continue through July 7 and feature an eclectic group of support acts, from Georgia colleague Kevn Kinney (Drivn’ N Cryin’) to Larkin Poe, Garrison Starr, Aaron Lee Tasjan and Neko Case

Along with supporting their most recent album, Look Long, the duo has also been receiving rave reviews for their documentary feature,  It’s Only Life After All, which premiered opening night at the Sundance Film Festival and is being shown at the top film festivals across the country, including Sundance, Tribeca Festival, SXSW, and many more. 

Over a 25-plus year career that began in clubs around their native Atlanta, Georgia, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have recorded 16 studio albums (seven gold, four platinum, one double platinum), sold over 15 million records, and built a dedicated, enduring following. On their sixteenth studio album, Indigo Girls tell their origin story. Look Long is a stirring and eclectic collection of songs that finds the duo reunited with their strongest backing band to date. Produced by John Reynolds (Sinéad O’Connor, Damien Dempsey) and recorded in the countryside outside Bath, England at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, these 11 songs have a tender, revealing motion to them, as if they’re feeding into a Super 8 film projector, illuminating a darkened living room. 

When We Were Writers” recounts the flying sparks and passion Saliers felt as a young college student when the duo first started performing together. “Shit Kickin’” is a nuanced love letter to Ray’s Southern heritage. “I’m a little bit left of the ‘salt of the earth’ / That’s alright, I’ll prove my worth,” she sings. 

“As time has gone on, our audience has become more expansive and diverse which gives me a great sense of joy,” says Saliers. “We joke about being old, but what is old when it comes to music? We’re still a bar band at heart. We are so inspired by younger artists and while our lyrics and writing approach may change, our passion for music feels the same as it did when we were 25-years-old.”
