On Wednesday, September 23, 2015, journalist Jewly Hight will interview the Indigo Girls in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ford Theater about their creative inspiration, musical influences, and recording their latest album, One Lost Day, in Nashville.
Known for intricate harmonies; raw, poetic lyrics; and catchy melodic hooks, Indigo Girls, the platinum-selling folk-rock duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, met in elementary school in Decatur, Georgia, and started performing together a few years later. Their 1989 self-titled, major-label debut received a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album and included their first hit, “Closer to Fine.” Through the 1990s, they charted more hits like “Hammer and a Nail” and “Galileo” and toured constantly, including a stint with the Lilith Fair festival, building a loyal fan-base who connected not only with the music, but also with the group’s outspoken support of various social, political, and environmental causes.
Free to museum members. Limited seating. Program pass required. This program takes place in the Museum’s Ford Theater. The event will also be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
Following the screening, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will screen Indigo Girls: The Making of ‘One Lost Day’ in the Ford Theater at 1:30 p.m. This film follows Amy Ray and Emily Saliers over the course of a two-week recording session for the latest Indigo Girls album, One Lost Day.
