New country-flavored music from an Indigo Girl
Amy Ray teamed up with Emily Saliers while in high school, and soon the duo became a staple in the Atlanta music scene. In 1981, their independent music career began with a basement recording called Tuesday's Children. One thing led to another, and they signed with Epic Records in 1988. Despite almost polar-opposite styles, they met on the common ground of harmony and the love of meaningful music. Ray brought fire and earth, Saliers the wind and water. Since the release of her 2001 album, "Stag," however, she's had an independent career that is different from, and complements, that of the parent duo. Amy has released seven albums, and she comes to The Ark with an eighth, the country-flavored "Holler." Tennessee "Southern gothic" songwriter Amythyst Kiah opens.
