Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, have made the pursuit of unity, both in music and life, their calling card ever since they burst into the spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Experience the unity in Chicago this November as The Indigo Girls perform a two-night concert event to fight local hunger. Proceeds benefit Beyond Hunger, formerly Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry.
The Indigo Girls critically acclaimed debut album earned a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Songs like “Closer to Fine,” “Galileo,” and “Power of Two” inspired and spoke to their followers. The folk icons did not rest on their laurels though, selling over 14 million records, and touring with stars like Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, and Mary Chapin Carpenter. The Indigo Girlsare the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s, earning them the lasting respect and devotion of a multi-generational audience
Decades into their career, the Indigo Girls still amaze listeners with their ability to grow and thrive regardless what the state of the music industry is at any given point. No matter where their creative journey takes them, they hold out a hand to their listeners and take them for a transformational ride. They continue to create new music while also supporting numerous social causes. They don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk.
Proceeds from the two-day concert event will directly benefit the 40,000 individuals Beyond Hunger serves across Chicagoland every year. Located in the near-west suburbs of Chicago, Beyond Hunger (formerly Oak Park River Food Pantry) provides hunger relief and essential programming to residents of 13 zip codes, including the West Side of Chicago and many of its surrounding suburbs.
