Having been together as a folk/rock duo for 20 years, one would wonder if the Indigo Girls had begun to get sick of one other. As Emily Saliers (pictured right)and Amy Ray currently tour in promotion of their last album “Despite Our Differences” and put the finishing touches on their next, their eleventh CD, that’s clearly not the case.
“We’ve known each other since we were in elementary school. We have a respect for each other and we’re like family,” Saliers explained in a recent interview. “We’re like sisters, [but] very different. We have separate groups of friends. Amy lives out in the country, [while] I’m more of a city girl. She’s more of a rocker – more post-punk influence and I’m more R&B groove/Joni Mitchell- influenced. It’s very unusual it’s kind of ying/yang.”
The ying and the yang will perform at The Ridgefield Playhouse at 80 East Ridge on Thursday, July 10 at 8 p.m.
