Indigo Girls to perform at ICON Honors
April 19, 2017,
The Indigo Girls (Emily Saliers and Amy Ray) will be the featured performers at this year's ICON Honors, AmericasMart announced today.
This year's event, which honors achievement in the home and gift industry, will be held Thurs., July 13, 2017, at Atlanta's world-renowned Fox Theatre.
Together Saliers and Ray write, arrange, record and perform music which over the course of twenty-five years has become a vital part of the lives of their legion of devoted fans around the world, informing and rewarding them day to day. With twelve original studio albums, three live records, various Greatest Hits compilations, a Rarities and a Christmas record to their credit, the duo continues to challenge itself creatively, over and over again, adding to a body of work that contains such contemporary classic songs as “Galileo,” “Shame on You,” “Closer To Fine,” “Kid Fears,” “Love of Our Lives,” “Making Promises,” “Get out the Map,” “Moment of Forgiveness,” “Least Complicated” and “Go.”
After numerous Grammy nominations, awards and gold and platinum certifications, and decades of touring in clubs, arenas and everything in between, Indigo Girls remain active and relevant, always viewing their music as a fresh opportunity for exploration and discovery.
“The native talent and transcendent appeal of Emily Saliers and Amy Ray is a global phenomenon,” said Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., vice chairman, president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart Atlanta. “The Indigo Girls define a genre of music that is timeless and captivating. That they emerged from Atlanta’s music culture to the world stage and continue to call this city home makes Emily’s and Amy’s appearance on our ICON Honors stage all the more relevant and exciting."
