Holly Happy Days

IG Recordings/Vanguard Records

For over twenty years folk-rock duo Indigo Girls have starred and stunned audiences across the globe.  Both undeniably pleasant and uplifting all the while encompassing a number of genres, it’s no wonder Indigo Girls have such a following.  Holly Happy Days will be Amy Ray and Emily Saliers thirteenth album together, and the duo’s first holiday album.  Here they capture a sound that is perfectly reminiscent of the crackling fire as well as delicately hanging those decorations on that giant tree in the living room.  They sing songs both classic (“Oh Holly Night” is particularly gorgeous) and modern (Woody Guthrie’s favorite “Happy Joyous Hanukkah”) as well as three of their own original and uniquely Indigo Girls songs (instant classics in their own right).  Don’t make that mistake of assuming all holiday albums are lame, Holly Happy Days is a shining star in the sea of green and red.
