For the third time Grammy® award winning folk duo The Indigo Girls, are returning to Bloomington, Indiana’s Buskirk-Chumley Theater. If Amy Ray and Emily Sallier’s sold out performances at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater of 2004 and 2010 serve as any indication of the relevance of the duo in the Bloomington community, their stop in Bloomington on November 2 will be nothing short of a tremendous success.
October 4, 2011 marked the release of Indigo Girls’ 16th studio album Beauty Queen Sister. Their prolific career includes 15 other albums and their awards and recognitions are numerous, listing 20 entries on the Billboard® charts, 8 Billboard® singles, and a Grammy® Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album, for their album Indigo Girls. Many other albums have been recognized by the recording industry for their audience response, reaching platinum for 1992’s Rites of Passage and reaching gold for Nomads & Indians, the single Back on the Bus, Y’all and the album Swamp Ophelia. Indigo Girls’ songs have been used in many different motion pictures and TV series, including the CBS crime thriller Cold Case.
Beauty Queen Sister is a stunning 13-song collection featuring the signature storytelling that fans have grown to love, touching on modern-world worries and romanticizing the simplicity of days gone by. Recorded in Nashville, the duo reunited with producer Peter Collins, with whom the Indigo Girls worked on Rites of Passage and Swamp Ophelia. Beauty Queen Sister will be the fourth album released on IG Recordings/ Vanguard Records.
Long time activists for human rights, Ray and Salliers are not only identified as leaders of the movement for LGBTQ rights and equality, but are recognized for their efforts for women’s rights, poverty awareness, environmental sustainability and the rights of Native Americans. In addition to numerous appearances during tribute concerts, their efforts include an appearance on the notorious album I’m Not Dead by the artist Pink. In this vocal confrontation with President George W. Bush they criticized everything from war and poverty to No Child Left Behind and the Bush administration’s approach to LGBTQ rights.
