Over 50 years since she began her career at the famed Club 47 in Boston, Joan Baez remains a musical force of nature whose journey has been driven by a passion for human rights, the path of which has taken her from marching on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement with Martin Luther King Jr. to inspiring Vaclav Havel to fight for a Czech Republic and points in between too numerous to mention. She unselfconsciously introduced Bob Dylan to the world in 1963 and continues to serve as a lightning rod for generations of songwriters, most recently on her 2008 Grammy nominated studio album, Day After Tomorrow, the release of which was followed by the PBS American Masters premier of her life story, Joan Baez: How Sweet The Sound.
The simple formula of earnest, intelligent songwriting, commanding harmonies, and effortless live performances has made the Indigo Girls a favorite folk rock act for more than 20 years. Since their GRAMMY® Award-winning single “Closer to Fine” topped the charts in the late 1980s, the duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have released multiple platinum records including the popular Rites of Passage and Shaming of the Sun.
On their fourteenth studio album, the Indigo Girls deliver a beautifully crafted batch of songs that revel in spirited simplicity. Alternating richly textured storytelling with moody ruminations on modern-world worries, Beauty Queen Sister (released in 2011 on IG Recordings) reveals a fierce longing for a more idyllic existence while still celebrating the extraordinary in everyday living. Thanks to its graceful mix of openhearted songwriting and lush, intricate arrangements—not to mention powerful performances by the band and their brigade of guest musicians—Beauty Queen Sister ultimately allows the listener to slip into the sort of dreamy serenity that Amy Ray and Emily Saliers sing of striving for throughout the record.
