SILVER CITY, NM – The Mimbres Region Arts Council, in conjunction with premier sponsor Cissy McAndrew/United County Mimbres Realty and lodging sponsor Holiday Inn Express, announces an Indie/Folk concert. Missy and Heine Andersen take the stage Saturday, March 10 at 7:30 pm at the Buckhorn Opera House, in the scenic mountain town of Pinos Altos – just a 10-minute drive from Silver City.

Missy Andersen and her accompanist/husband, Heine Andersen, love what they do. Keeping a heavy touring schedule, the tenacious twosome performs as a duo which showcases the couple's individual and combined talents. In the absence of other instruments, listeners find a greater appreciation for Missy's gospel-tinged vocals and Heine's Blues & Americana inspired guitar work. This will be first time performing at the Opera House.
