Indigo Girls Return To Belly Up Wednesday

Folk duo The Indigo Girls return to the Belly Up Wednesday. They teamed up with the University of Colorado Symphony Orchestra on a recent album, and that collaboration is shaping their outlook for this tour.  


The Indigo Girls’ Amy Ray said that there’s nothing quite like playing with a symphony of 75 musicians behind you.  

Although Ray and bandmate Emily Saliers are performing alone for this tour, she said that now, there’s a new dimension to their songs.  

"And then when we go back and we play as a duo, you know, we hear the symphony in our heads in some ways and in other ways we have a spontaneity that we have as a duo that we didn’t have with the symphony," said Ray.

Ray said that fans can expect to hear both popular favorites and more obscure songs on Wednesday.
