Indigo Girls Next in the Benefit Concert Series

SATURDAY OCTOBER 30th 2010: Presenting the fourth in the Return to Life Concert Series, Indigo Girls, at Merrill Auditorium, Portland ME.

With three successful concerts behind us, featuring Rufus Wainwright, Brandi Carlile, & David Bromberg, we are excited to welcome these Grammy-winning singer-songwriters to the Return to Life stage.

In the beginning of 1989, with the release of what has proven to be their most timeless classic "Closer to Fine," the Indigo Girls suddenly had everyone's attention. Their first major label release snagged them a Grammy award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording, as well as a nomination for Best New Artist.
