    Indigo Girls special – Show #159 (part 2), 28 June 2020

    Katie is joined by New York correspondent and huge Indigo Girls fan Mark Blankenship for a deep dive into the music and meaning of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers’ long-running duo. They talk about the albums Rites of Passage, Swamp Ophelia, Shaming of the Sun, Look Long and more; Amy and Emily’s activism and their collaborations with other artists; and the rise of queer voices in country/Americana music. Katie and Mark also work out whether they are an ‘Amy’ or an ‘Emily’; Mark shares his experience of growing up queer and loving country music in the south of the US; and Katie marvels at Mark’s perfect recall of the lyrics of ‘Ghost’. Here is the playlist:



    * Closer to Fine – Indigo Girls

    * Least Complicated – Indigo Girls

    * Get Out the Map – Indigo Girls

    * Ghost – Indigo Girls

    * Dear Mr President – Pink ft. Indigo Girls

    * Country Radio – Indigo Girls
