Grammy Award-winning duo the Indigo Girls will perform live at 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 17, in the University Theatre at the University of Montana.
Tickets cost $34 and are now available at all GrizTix outlets, by calling 406-243-4051 or 800-MONTANA or online at www.griztix.com.
The Indigo Girls will perform to raise awareness for the Missoula Urban Demonstration Project, a local nonprofit founded in the 1970s to create a replicable model of sustainable living through education, demonstration and celebration. Ticket sales will not directly benefit MUD, but the show will help highlight the role the organization plays in the Missoula community.
Since the duo’s formation in 1987, Indigo Girls Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have produced 10 studio albums and entertained millions of fans with their uplifting harmonies, infectious melodies and honest, passionate lyrics. They’ve also balanced their love for music with a commitment to social, political and environmental issues, and in 1991 formed the nonprofit Honor the Earth, which raises awareness and financial support for indigenous environmental justice.
Over the years, the organization also has supported groups fighting for women’s rights, civil rights for same-sex couples, the abolition of the death penalty and voter registration.
