Basic Folk: Amy Ray
Amy Ray, one half of the legendary folk rock band Indigo Girls, is known for her strong Southern roots, fierce devotion to all types of music, her activism, and (unbeknownst to her) her image as a gay fashion icon… or should I say institution. We talk about all this during our interview, which took place at Brandi Carlile’s “Girls Just Wanna Weekend” in the Riviera Maya in Mexico. She gives a pretty frank description of how to talk to people whose belief system is completely different than yours. She’s very easy to talk to and we were still talking after the tape stopped. Her latest solo record is Holler, filled with traditional folk instruments and various sounds.
