New Folk trailblazers, massive hitmakers and ardent social activists, the Indigo Girls are synonymous with the lighter side of ’90s music – which is to say pretty darn dark themselves, but leavened with a fine sense of close harmony and with songs that sport at least glimmers of hope and redemption. They have remained productive in the studio and are a failsafe concert attraction.
On Saturday, May 19, Bardavon presents the duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers at the Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston (UPAC). Ticket prices for this Indigo Girls concert range from $48 to $62 ($5 off and preferred seating for members). Tickets may be purchased at the Bardavon box office at 35 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, (845) 473-2072; the UPAC box office at 601 Broadway in Kingston, (845) 339-6088; and online at www.bardavon.org.
