Some of folk music’s leading lights were on stage when Ani DiFranco and the Indigo Girls played a co-billed show at Wolf Trap recently.
Indigo Girls, “one of the finest folk duos of all time” (NPR), and feminist icon and singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco return with a Grammy-winning blend of female-driven folk, rock, and pop on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at Wolf Trap.
Gracie Coates (piano/keyboards, vocals) and Rachel Ruggles (violin, vocals) create a what they’ve called “orchestral pop.” Their music ebbed and flowed in dark swirls while at the same time seemed to move forward in performance at 9:30 Club on Saturday, opening Ani DiFranco.
Folk rocker Ani DiFranco released Binary, her 19th studio album, last year on her own Righteous Babe Records, and she’s coming to play a show at 9:30 Club on Saturday, May 5. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
