>from that site, i found out under tv schedule and subsequently checking
local listings for december 5, that nationally, pbs is airing the
concert featuring the ig with three other artists.

i'm bummed because they aren't replaying it here in los angeles (kcet)
on that day.  oh well, i was lucky enough to catch it the first time it
aired last february.  it compounded my interest in ig somewhat, that
vonda shepard of ally mcbeal sang a duet with emily saliers of ig--emily
was seated at a microphone, and vonda was playing the piano and singing.
it's beautiful!  don't miss it, if you can help it.

there's a neat little bio of ig on the site that i didn't want to recopy
onto here--oh, what the hell, here it is:

the grammy award-winning duo indigo girls and acclaimed
singer/songwriter kim richey bring inspired songs and
       heartfelt performances to austin city limits saturday, february
28, 1998, on pbs (check local listings).

       with elements of folk and rock and a penchant for songwriting,
the indigo girls - amy ray and emily saliers - thoughtfully
       fuse their musical visions into an intimate and spirited sound.
they return to austin city limits following the release of their
       seventh album, shaming of the sun, with a goal of bringing
together songwriters who share their vision. they hand-picked
       three special guests freedy johnston, vonda shepard and mark
eitzel to perform both individually and with them in this
       intimate live setting.

       both ray and saliers agree that there's a special dynamic in
performing with new artists. "i think it's good to bring a little
       variety into the shows, it makes it a little fresher," ray says.
"you hear some new voices, and maybe some people in our
       audience will hear new voices, too, and that's kind of part of
our mission." on austin city limits the indigos also perform
       new songs, affirming their formidable artistic strengths as
songwriters and performers. songs include "get out the map"
       and "shame on you," their first hit single from shaming of the

       growing up in decatur, georgia, ray and saliers began playing
music together in high school. while at emory university in
       1983, they christened themselves the indigo girls. in 1987 they
released their first self-titled album on their own label,
       indigo records. their major label debut in 1989, also a
self-titled release, earned them a grammy for best contemporary
       folk recording. with four subsequent grammy nominations and the
almost religious support of fans and music press, the
       indigo girls consistently prove themselves first-rate songwriters
and musicians.


and here's another little bio from their 1992 appearance on acl:

the indigo girls may seem like an overnight success, with a debut album
that shot to gold and earned a grammy award.
       amy ray and emily saliers actually met as sixth-graders in
decatur, georgia, and began singing together in high school.
       they adopted the name indigo girls during their undergraduate
days at emory university in atlanta, releasing a single in
       1985 on their own indigo label. they continued working on the
indigo label until 1988, when they signed with epic records
       and released indigo girls, which went gold and earned the duo the
best contemporary folk group grammy in 1989. beautiful
       harmonies and human, poignant songwriting give their music an
almost mystical appeal. not content to simply sing about
       humanistic values, the indigo girls actively support causes
ranging from low-income housing to aids research.


okay, if you are still reading, here's a delight i found on the acl
website:  when i clicked on my local station listings by state: a
picture of amy is on the left column, and emily on the right column,
pops up! (these column pictures alternate with a pic of lyle lovett, and
other artists.) i'm sure someone has mentioned this before, but it just
made me laugh out loud.
