ATLANTA, April 19, 2017—The Indigo Girls (Emily Saliers and Amy Ray) will take the ICON HONORS 2017 stage on Thursday, July 13 in an exclusive performance for the home and gift industry. The private concert—staged at the Fox Theatre—is the finale to the ICON HONORS celebration, which will again see a sell-out audience of finalists, honorees and guests in attendance. ICON HONORS is produced by AmericasMart Atlanta in partnership with the Gift & Home Trade Association (GHTA) and Progressive Business Media, and in association with the industry foundation Gift For Life.

Together Saliers and Ray write, arrange, record and perform music which over the course of twenty-five years has become a part of the lives of their devoted fans around the world. With 12 original studio albums, three live records, various Greatest Hits compilations, a Rarities and a Christmas record to their credit, the duo continues to create new music, including contemporary classic songs such as “Galileo,” “Shame on You,” “Closer To Fine,” “Kid Fears,” “Love of Our Lives,” “Making Promises,” “Get out the Map,” “Moment of Forgiveness,” “Least Complicated” and “Go.”

“The native talent and transcendent appeal of Emily Saliers and Amy Ray is a global phenomenon,” noted Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., vice chairman, president and chief operating officer of ICON HONORS producer AmericasMart Atlanta. “The Indigo Girls define a genre of music that is timeless and captivating. That they emerged from Atlanta’s music culture to the world stage and continue to call this city home makes Emily’s and Amy’s appearance on our ICON HONORS stage all the more relevant and exciting,” Portman added.

The ICON HONORS 2017 celebration will take place on Thursday, July 13. Visit ICONHONORS.com for more information.
