Tanglewood Presents: Four Voices: Joan Baez, Indigo Girls & Mary Chapin Carpenter

Koussevitzky Music Shed
Lenox, MA
7:00 pm |

The "Four Voices" tour was born from a friendship between Joan Baez (pictured), Mary Chapin Carpenter, Amy Ray, and Emily Saliers. Over 25 years ago, Baez invited Ray and Saliers to perform at a 1991 benefit at the Berkeley Community Theater for her human rights organization, Humanitas. Upon accepting the invitation, Ray and Saliers suggested enlisting Carpenter as well. After a successful performance, the four of them reconnected a year later at an Earth Day Celebration in Boston and at the Newport Folk Festival. Most recently, while together at Baez's 75th birthday concert at the Beacon Theatre, they discussed the possibility of going on tour together and-one year later-the Four Voices Tour was confirmed.
