The power of unity, both in music and in life, has been an INDIGO GIRLS calling card ever since they burst into the spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since the duo got together thirty odd years ago as high-school students in the southern U.S. state of Georgia, they have produced fifteen albums (seven gold, four platinum, and one double platinum), earned a Grammy and seven Grammy nominations, and have toured arenas, festivals, and clubs the world over. It is rare to find musicians together so long, rarer still with such profound successes. Their music lives in the hearts of generations of dedicated fans and continues to inspire young musicians. This loyalty is not accidental.
Decades into their career, the Indigo Girls still amaze conventional pundits with their ability to grow and thrive. The duo’s constant touring, as well as staunch dedication to social and environmental causes, has earned them a fervidly devoted following over the years. The Indigo Girls stand tall, having earned the lasting respect and devotion of a multi-generational audience which continues to experience their creative evolution in the studio and on stage. No matter where their creative journey takes them, they hold out a hand to their listeners and we get to feel it all.
Born into a musical family in New York’s Greenwich Village, LUCY WAINWRIGHT ROCHE is deeply steeped in this world. In addition to her parents Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche of The Roches and her siblings, Martha and Rufus Wainwright, Lucy’s various aunts, uncles and cousins are all musicians. She is the third member of her immensely talented family to play Sligo Live, following her sister, Martha (2009) and brother Rufus (2015). The New York Times describes her clear, steady voice as a beacon of sorts, slicing straight through the room and NPR said she is “sincere and raw; her bittersweet voice leaps out, she paints an incredible image”. Lucy is indeed a very special guest. Not to be missed!
