An Evening with Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls

Join us for an intimate conversation, performances and Q&A

Emily Saliers is one half of the Grammy Award-winning folk rock music duo Indigo Girls. Over the years, they have sold over fifteen million albums worldwide, as well as earning six Grammy nominations. In 1989, they were nominated for Best New Artist and took home the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.

Saliers plays acoustic and electric guitars as well as banjo, piano, mandolin, and ukulele. Saliers has written many of the Indigo Girls fan favorite songs and concert stand outs such as Closer To Fine, Get Out the Map, Least Complicated, Power of Two and Galileo to name a few.

While Indigo Girls is still very much alive and well, Emily Saliers recorded and toured in support of her first solo album, Murmuration Nation in 2017.

“The debut solo outing from Indigo Girls’ Emily Saliers, Murmuration Nation is a bold, versatile, and often beautiful collection of globally inspired pop songs that infuse the folk-rock/Americana stylings of her flagship group with elements of R&B, hard rock, and worldbeat.” – All Music The record

Hosted by The Bruce Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music
Q & A will be hosted by Bob Santelli, Grammy Museum.
