indigo girls play terror benefit

atlanta (ap) - musical groups arrested development and the indigo girls
were among the performers at a 12-hour benefit
saturday to raise money for victims of the terrorist attacks in new
york and washington.

talk show host montel williams was also to appear at the event, along
with sister hazel, edwin mccain, and shawn mullins.

emily saliers, half of the decatur, ga.-based indigo girls, asked
audience members to pray for victims, their families, grieving
americans ''and also for the people of afghanistan (news - web sites),
people all over the world, people who suffer.''

organizers of the outdoor concert, held at centennial olympic park,
hoped to raise $1 million.

yes, we were there...........  it was an amazingly beautiful day in atlanta.
  they were originally scheduled for 10 minutes, but they ended up only
playing for three.   it was a beautiful three minutes though................

they played a gorgeous acapella "finlandia" with clare kinney and carol
isaacs, who are in town recording the new cd.  blair cunningham was also
spotted walking around with the girls.    and that was it!   it was amazing,
and they sounded great!   i thought emily's voice was particularly strong and
clear.

this is what emily played at the oakhurst recovery benefit tonight at the
first existential church, in candler park:

philosophy of loss
deconstruction of love (which, according to her, still hasn't been named)
she's saving me
finlandia

this time she was accompanied by clare kenney (on bass), carol isaacs (on
keyboard, and accordian), and brady blade (on drums).   i was mistakenly
informed that it was blair spotted at centennial park yesterday, when in
fact, it was brady.  this is the band recording with the girls on their new
cd.

they sounded great - even better than yesterday, although it was an
altogether different setting.    emily's voice sounded even stronger and
clearer in the small church setting.

btw - here is a link to a picture from the "atlanta unites" event yesterday
