With their March and April tour dates canceled, the Indigo Girls will stream a live performance on their Facebook page at 6 p.m. Thursday.
“We will . . . be playing a low key, homegrown set of songs and talking to people directly through a Q and A,” they posted on the page.
The Indigo Girls — Emily Saliers and Amy Ray — grew out of the Decatur folk scene in the 1980s and have an international following. They plan to release a new album — Look Long — next month and were on tour in the Northeast when the nation began to shut down public gatherings because of the coronavirus.
“The heart-wrenching moment we made the decision to cancel our shows scheduled was the moment we knew we wanted to play a free livestream show,” Saliers told Rolling Stone. “People are feeling scared, isolated, uncertain and unmoored. For the public good, we all have to do our part not to gather in person, but we can still play music.”
