I love them so much. They did a live concert from a living room somewhere to raise money (they raised a ton) for an organization. You can watch the recorded concert on YouTube:

ARE there any other Indigo Girls fans? They are the backdrop to a particular challenging and eventful time in my life.

My husband, brother-in-law and myself saw them a number of years ago at a free concert. My brother-in-law has passed since then. It is certainly a wonderful memory.

I don't know them super well, but their song, Ghost, is so beautiful!

That's is the music of my late teens. They were big at the summer camp I went to and some of their songs, edited for sure, were used in chapel and prayer services. I went to an episcopal summer camp and it was a bit liberal compared to other churches in Louisiana.

This is true for me as well. I didn't discover them until I was going through a very painful divorce in my late 20s.

They did a free concert in my hometown, a college town, back in the late 80's. I was in high school. It was awesome. I just about wore out the cassette!

Yes!!! I love them. Such a big part of my high school and college life. I learned their songs on my guitar and was inspired to write my own. Huge fan!

I love them. I canít tell you how many times I played the Strange Fire Album. It brings back wonderful memories of meeting and falling in love with my husband.

A couple of their songs were on the track a clothing store I worked at played over and over. I became a fan. This was about 18 years ago.

Love them! So many of their songs take me right back to the places I was at or the people I was with at the time. They did a concert in my area a few years ago but I wasnít able to go. Iím going to watch the video now. Thanks for sharing it!

I went to Israel in High School and one of my roommates was a fan. I was never into music aside from Showtunes. One of my all time favorite songs-"Closer to Fine." I haven't watched the concert, I tried to do one a few weeks ago and it took forever to figure out where to go, then I think the venue wanted you to sign up with a credit card, even though it was free. It was too much of a pain in the ______.

I saw them in college at a college concert shortly after I was introduced to them. It was a small college, and it was so awesome to be so close to "the stage" and hear them so clearly! (outdoor concert) Best concert ever.

If you want to watch the one I linked (it's the entire playlist from one of their albums, plus "Closer to Fine" at the end), it's free and easy and you just click on the link

Their newest album drops on Friday!

Ah, yes, Ghost! I sang that song a lot when going through a breakup of sorts!

I love that

AWESOME I also played some songs on the guitar in college (such a huge part of my college life) and one of my good friends just texted me a pic of me and another friend playing guitar in someone's dorm room. I don't remember that particular instance, but I do remember doing things like that a lot
