Indigo Girls, Boz Scaggs shows coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall

Ruth Eckerd Hall announced Monday that Grammy-winning folk duo the Indigo Girls will play with a symphony at the Clearwater concert hall in June and rock legend Boz Scaggs will be there May 3 to support his latest studio album release, Memphis — with special guest Pablo Cruise.

Tickets for both shows go on sale Saturday.

Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, who make up the Indigo Girls, are launching their first national symphony tour, which includes a stop June 1 in Clearwater with a 36-piece symphony orchestra.

With 14 albums to their credit and a career that spans decades, with hits Closer to Fine, Galileo and Love of Our Lives. or this tour, they've brought in musical arrangers Sean O'Loughlin (Chris Issak, Feist, The Decemberists, Josh Ritter) and Stephen Barber (Rosanne Cash, Alejandro Escovedo, John Legend) to write orchestral charts for a selection of songs.

While each show will be different, each performance will last roughly two hours with the orchestra, an intermission, and then Ray and Saliers will perform one or two songs without the orchestra as an encore.

Tickets are $39-$59 at the Ruth Eckerd Hall ticket office, 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater or by calling (727) 791-7400 or online at RuthEckerdHall.com.

William Royce "Boz" Scaggs has been a multiplatinum selling musician since 1965 with the release of his first solo recording Boz. Scaggs quickly developed into an iconic singer-songwriter (Lowdown, Lido Shuffle). He and his band performed alongside Donald Fagan and Michael McDonald in their band billed as The Dukes of September, which performed a sold-out show at Ruth Eckerd Hall in July 2012.

Tickets are priced at $49-$85 and go on sale Saturday.

  3. Pain does not exist in the Karate 3 soundtrack ... does it?!?

    Should the Karate Kid series have stopped at the original? Probably, but if we didn't have Karate Kid 3 would will still have the lost song Listen To Her Heart by the Little River Band?

  4. Bar review: The Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.
  5. Local craft beer of the week: Two Henrys Belleview-Biltmore Blueberry Vanilla Wheat

    Bars & Spirits

    Two Henrys Brewing Company is a unique entity in the Tampa Bay brewing scene, due to both its status as the only brewery in Plant City, as well as its location on a 27-acre working farm, which also includes a winery.
