Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one of their finest rockers.– The Boston Herald

Their 14th studio album finds the Indigo Girls operating as powerfully as at any time in their career, on a set of uncommonly strong songs performed with the kind of typically understated Nashville polish that affords their signature harmonies the full spotlight.
– The Independent (UK)

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s.
After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed eponymous album 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.” They were overnight folk icons who continued to live up to the high standards they’d set for themselves: they’ve since released 14 albums (3 platinum and 3 gold), received six Grammy nominations and have won one. Indigo Girls have toured with innumerable star acts including Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk.  Having established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain relevant and attract new fans. With their latest release, Beauty Queen Sister, released on IG Recordings distributed by Vanguard Records, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

In 2015 Indigo Girls released their 16th studio album, One Lost Day, produced by Jordan Brooke Hamlin and mixed by Brian Joseph.Amythyst Kiah

A professed Southern Gothic songster based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. A graduate of East Tennessee State University, she studied old time music and music performance, and it proved to be a pivotal moment in her life as she transformed from a long-time closet musician into a well-rounded, captivating performer.

Accoutered interchangeably with banjo, acoustic guitar, or a full band (Her Chest of Glass), Amythyst’s toolbox is augmented by her scholarship of African-American roots music. Her eclectic influences span decades, drawing heavily on old time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Olla Belle Reed, Carter Family), inspired by strong R&B and country music vocalists from the ’50s-’70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn) and influenced by contemporary artists with powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Megan Jean and the KFB, Janelle Monae).

Recent tours in Scotland and the U.K. have seen Amythyst performing for audiences at the Americana Music Association UK Showcase, the Southern Fried Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and SummerTyne Americana Festival. She is a crowd favorite at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion in the U.S., has performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, and the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival.

Provocative and coolly fierce, Amythyst Kiah’s ability to cross the boundaries of blues and old-time through reinterpretation is groundbreaking and simply unforgettable.

CafeGive Social Helps Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest Kick off a Year of Social Media Fundraising Campaigns


Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 26, 2015

Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest kicked off the first of its 2015 campaigns with the #PowerofHer movement. Enlisting the guidance of CafeGive Social, the team built their campaign around that hashtag, which speaks to their mission to empower girls and women to take ownership of their bold, smart, and strong sides. Using a social aggregation tool, CafeGive was able to help Girls Inc. build a Pinterest-esque page that would collect and display the tagged posts from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Through its Social Media Mashup Page, Girls Inc. asked fans and local leaders to share tagged posts on each channel. For each post, ComcastGirls Inc.s sponsorcommitted to contribute an in-kind donation worth $ 5 towards an initial goal of 500 posts for $ 2,500. Acting as a cause marketing consultant, CafeGive collaborated with Girls Inc. to strategize and implement a promotional strategy via emails, events, and a fine-tuned social media posting schedule.

By adopting these strategies and capitalizing on relevant and timely viral content, Girls Inc. reached and exceeded their donation goal while exponentially expanding its brand reach nationwide.

A well-timed post during the hype of Patricia Arquettes Oscars acceptance speech reached uncharted impressions on Twitter and Instagram.

Comcast generously offered to match the additional posts raised on top of their original commitment for a total of $ 3,240 in-kind donations.

While this first campaign has come to a successful close, the hashtag #PowerOfHer will remain a symbol throughout the year, and beyond. Its clear message holds true for the entire suite of campaigns to come. For the time-being, the mashup page will continue to grow on Girls Inc.s website as a window to the hundreds of amazing posts shared by advocates for womens empowerment.

Carolina Rollergirls vs. Charlotte Roller Girls Double Header

Carolina Rollergirls vs. Charlotte Roller Girls Double Header
Event on 2015-03-07 14:00:00
Who could miss a roller derby rivalry rematch right here in Raleigh? Not you that's who!

Come see the Carolina Rollergirls of the Triangle area return for their 11th season of roller derby with a double header against the Charlotte Roller Girls on Saturday, March 7th at the Dorton Arena (North Carolina State Fairgrounds) beginning at 2:00pm. When the Carolina All-Stars last faced off against the Charlotte All Stars in July of last year, the ladies from Charlotte won 211 to 161. The Carolina Rollergirls will be looking for redemption and a shot to improve their international roller derby rankings with this bout.

"This game is going to be tough – Charlotte beat us on the road this year and we are excited to play them on our home turf," said Dot Bomber, a veteran Carolina Rollergirl. "This is great bout for the CRG return to Dorton Arena."

Playing a team so close to home presents a challenge as many of the hometown Carolina Rollergirls play alongside women from Charlotte on Team North Carolina All Stars, a roller derby team that is made up of the best roller girls in the state. Team North Carolina travels the country playing other state level teams. From playing on the same team, the skaters from the two leagues know each other's strategies well.

Carolina Rollergirls All-Star Slingin' Gritz plans on showing no mercy to her fellow Team North Carolina rollergirls from Charlotte. "I will be watching all the tricks that my Charlotte teammates can pull." Slingin' Grits continued, "Because for one day on March 7 in Dorton, we are no longer teammates!"

The hometown Carolina Rollergirls will be looking for revenge in what is sure to be an action packed bout full of hard hits and tough ladies! Doors will open at 2:00 p.m. At 3:00 p.m., the Carolina Bootleggers will take on the Charlotte B Dazzlers. The headlining bout starts at 5:00 p.m. as the Carolina All-Stars take on the Charlotte All Stars. The event is open to all ages. Adult tickets are in advance or at the door. Children's tickets are always . Tickets can be purchase online at carolinarollergirls.com.
