Hamilton College to bring the Indigo Girls to Utica

The sponsors who brought singer/songwriter Bob Dylan to the Mohawk Valley in April, have scheduled another major concert at the Stanley Performing Arts Center in Utica.

Hamilton College's Campus Activities Board is proud to present the Indigo Girls in concert at the Stanley on Saturday, Nov. 1, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $27.50 and will go on sale Saturday, Oct. 4., at all Ticketmaster outlets.

The Indigo Girls have distinguished themselves from other acts with their unique blend of folk, rock, and indigenous music. Their self-titled 1989 album won the Grammy award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Since then they have released numerous albums including 1200 Curfews, Rites of Passage, Swamp Ophelia and their latest Shaming of the Sun.

Known for their commitment to social change, their 1995 Honor the Earth tour raised more that $300,000 for Native American environmental groups. This year's Honor the Earth tour focuses on increasing public awareness of and opposition to plans for nuclear waste storage on Native American lands.

"We are delighted to once again sponsor a concert at the Stanley Theater in Utica," said Corey Landstrom, program coordinator of Student Activities. "The availability of such a wonderful facility so close to campus has enabled us to consider groups that we might not otherwise be able to attract. We are grateful to the management of the Stanley and are looking forward to another fantastic concert."
