Amy Ray and Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls) will join longtime friends Joan Baez and Mary Chapin Carpenter for the “Four Voices Tour,” which kicks off June 3rd at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The quartet of singer-songwriters will share the stage for these special group performances.
The bond between these four acclaimed artists began over 25 years ago when Baez invited Ray and Saliers to perform at a 1991 benefit at the Berkeley Community Theater for her human rights organization. The Indigo Girls suggested enlisting Carpenter as well. The four of them reconnected a year later at an Earth Day celebration in Boston and at the Newport Folk Festival. Most recently, while together at Baez’s 75th birthday concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, they discussed the possibility of going on tour together.
The 10-date Four Voices Tour isn’t stopping in Georgia (at least not for this initial run), unfortunately. The closest dates are the aforementioned opening night in Nashville, and June 5th in Raleigh.
