We are honored to present together on stage four iconic voices of American song: Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Amy Ray and Emily Saliers (the Indigo Girls). We’ve hosted each artist singly over the years but never dreamed we might one day welcome them all to our stage to sing each other’s songs in a special acoustic concert. It’s an experience to savor for a lifetime.
These remarkable women hardly require an introduction. Joan Baez is the voice of a generation and a courageous humanitarian who marched with Martin Luther King. She has lent her stunning soprano to the causes of civil and human rights throughout the world and is a recipient of a Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement. Her passion for music and public service has continued for more than 50 years.
Over the course of her distinguished career, Mary Chapin Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 million records. With hits like ”Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, and two Academy of Country Music awards and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. She released her most recent album, The Things That We Are Made Of, last spring.
Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have spent 35 years performing together as the Indigo Girls. They’ve released 16 top-selling albums, and their music has inspired generations of passionate fans. It’s rare to find artists whose creative synergy remains undiminished over so many years and who are as relevant as ever.
