countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way
in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily
are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s.
In 2012, Saliers and her Indigo Girls partner Amy Ray embarked on a bold new chapter,
collaborating with a pair of orchestrators to prepare larger-than-life arrangements of their songs

the project, creating a seamless blend of folk, rock, pop, and classical that elevated their songs to
new heights without scarifying any of the emotional intimacy and honesty that have defined their

experiences has finally been captured in all its grandeur on the band’s stunning new album,
‘Indigo Girls Live With The University of Colorado Symphony Orchestra.’

racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and
earned the respect of high profile peers and collaborated from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. NPR’s
Mountain Stage called the group “one of the finest folk duos of all time” while Rolling Stone
said “they personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come
together to create something transcendentally its own.”
The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes
– the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. Both on and off the stage, Emily
Saliers and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this
