The Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed debut album in 1988 to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” Since then, the band has racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, received 6 Grammy Nominations and earned the respect of high profile peers-turned-collaborators from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. NPR’s Mountain Stage called the group “one of the finest folk duos of all time,” while Rolling Stone said they “personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something transcendently its own,” and The New York Times raved that “gleeful profanities, righteous protest anthems and impeccable folk songwriting have carried this duo for thirty years.”
Buffalo’s own Grace Stumberg opens the show.
Grace Stumberg is a creator of friendly original music that grabs the ears of any listener. Born in Buffalo, NY, Stumberg is inspired by raw simple songwriting that really rocks out, and her music is a genre that can be explained as pop/rock/funky and sometimes folk; never fully understood until experienced. She has learned the ways of the “touring world” by serving as folk legend Joan Baez’s personal assistant since November 2011, and back-up singer since 2012. This experience has led to other opportunities in the music industry, such as singing with the Indigo Girls, and opening up for Josh Ritter. Stumberg has also opened for Baez in Lowell, MA, and performed her own show in Dublin, Ireland during a Baez tour.
Stumberg’s voice and songwriting style shows that she has a maturity well beyond her years, which has resulted from her many career and life experiences. Throughout her days touring with Baez, she has gained an insatiable hunger to share her music with others. Stumberg has toured with musicians such as Left On Red and Pete Mroz, singing songs to bring awareness to fair-trade purchases and raising money for local food banks. She has accomplished a lot in her hometown, such as singing Buffalo’s “Good Feet” jingle and opening for bands such as Rusted Root, Hawksley Workman, and Haiku
