Longtime friends Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Indigo Girls members Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have teamed to form a special group, Four Voices, and will play some exclusive tour dates this June, which will include a stop at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
The four became friends over 25 years ago when Baez invited Ray and Saliers to perform at a 1991 benefit at the Berkeley Community Theater for her human rights organization, Humanitas. Upon accepting, Ray and Saliers suggested enlisting Carpenter as well, and following a successful performance the four reconnected a year later at an Earth Day Celebration in Boston and at the Newport Folk Festival. They mulled over the idea of touring together at Baez’s 75th birthday concert at the Beacon Theatre and solidified the new tour a year later.
Tickets for the shows go on sale beginning the week of Feb. 20.
