Rockland — Emily Saliers, one half of the iconic duo Indigo Girls, will perform solo Friday, Nov. 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St. Alt-country rocker Becky Warren will open the show.

Saliers is touring with her debut solo album “Murmuration Nation.” The Indigo Girls have not split up; 30 years into one of the most storied careers in popular music, Saliers has set out to explore the kind of rhythmically centered, globally-inspired music that's always held a special place in her heart. These songs also reveal a new side of Saliers' artistry, one that even her most ardent fans might not expect to hear.

"It was so freeing to pursue the kind of music I truly wanted to make without regard to what I'd done before or who I'm expected to be," said Saliers. “I hope that this record can take people who think they know me already on a journey that'll really surprise them."

Tickets are $30 in advance and will be $35 at the door. Lobby and balcony bars will be open for those age 21 and older. For more information, visit; call 594-0070, ext. 3; or email
