subject: [ig-news] la and santa ana

[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was originally
sent to
the indigo girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

well, this is my first time with internet access since early on 5/12.
it looks like no one else has posted to review the santa ana and la
shows, so..... i'll be brief.
saw amy and family outing load in at the la show. the show itself was
good, i didn't feel like she was as engaged with the audience as at
the sf show. amy wore plaid pants and an elvis tee with the sleeves
cut off.  she played...god, what did she play? i want to say
everything from prom? she may have skipped rodeo. she said she had
planned on skipping lucy stoners that night, but some guy requested it
so she played it after all. [...]
santa ana--the venue was kind of in the middle of nowhere. amy was
much more talkative at this show. during family outing's set they were
trying to come up with names for amy's band, and when she was on stage
later she said she'd heard the names. she th
en decided that amy ray and the allies would be the best name. she
said they ate too heavily before the show and then had some caffeine
and played pig. she was wearing a red tee shirt and jeans. i think she
played all of prom and then some cuts from stag. she talked about not
knowing what was marketable and what wasn't. she also mentioned the
cat that inspired johnny r. she said he'd had some urination issues
and after she'd taken him to the vet for the 5th time the vet said to
her, 'amy, it's not a health issue, it's behavioral." somehow it was
funny the way she said it. hmmmm i just managed to make a great show
seem kind of boring, maybe it's cause i'm so tired today....

indigo girl and dad blend sacred and secular music
by tiffany rae leonard - one half of the indigo girls joined her
father, a professor of theology and worship, to show what happens when
saturday night meets sunday morning.


washington, d.c. - infozine - emily saliers, a member of the folk-rock
duo, and her father, don e. saliers, a professor at the chandler
school of theology at emory university, visited the washington
national cathedral tuesday to discuss their new book, "a song to sing,
a life to live."

the book developed from a conversation between emily and her father
that explores two generation, two genres of music and two outlooks on
faith. they planned to write an essay aimed at teens, but an editor
said it would make a better book.

"we offer it as an invitation to embrace a broader, deeper vision of
the power and role of music in human life - and especially to embrace
the spiritual and religious dimensions of attentive listening,
collaborative music making, and honest sharing." emily and her father
wrote in the book.

"it came a sort of a surprise when i was told about the book idea. i
was afraid of letting my fans down," emily told the audience.

emily talked about the difficultly she encountered in the project
because she does not practice a particular religion, and her father
does.

"i realized that it was going to have religious connections and
connotations. i felt a great fear," emily said in the book.

both said it was a joy to work on.

during the lecture, the father-daughter duo alternated songs and
stories to convey their many points on how music has the power to
connect, inspire and console people.

"if it had not been for certain music, many movements would not have
occurred, such as apartheid, civil right movement," said saliers, who
has been a church musician in addition to his teaching duties.

the duo's performance of the song "hammer and nail" that transitioned
to the refrain in a second song - "let us break bread together" - left
audience members in awe.

"i loved it. i love how the secular and sacred blend through church,"
said allison stone, 32, of baltimore, after watching the performance.

"i loved it," said eric manning, of silver spring, md., a fan of the
indigo girls and a songwriter.

"i normally hear their music in concerts and things like that, but to
hear it acoustically like this was amazing." manning said.

the event ended with a question and answer session and a book signing.
