This year’s lineup was selected through audience surveys of favorite past performers. The music stylings span folk, blues, roots, bluegrass and even hints of jazz. The Mimbres Region Arts Council is pleased to announce:

  • Ronny Cox – November 1, 2019
  • Missy Andersen and her One Man Band – January 25, 2020
  • Abbie Gardner (of Red Molly) – March 7, 2020
  • Eliza Gilkyson – April 4, 2020
  • Hard Road Trio – May 9, 2020

Kicking off the 10th Season, New Mexico native, Ronny Cox will give a special performance on November 1st, the eve of his induction to the New Mexico Music Hall of Fame. Ronny Cox is a talented singer-songwriter, musician and actor, starring in over 150 movies during his Hollywood career: from the timeless "Dueling Banjos" scene in the classic movie Deliverance to contemporary work on the Showtime hit show, Dexter. He also appeared in the final five episodes of Nashville, playing the father of one of the show's stars and performing on the show as well. Ronny has entertained the world for over 40 years. He brings his extraordinary view of life into a magnetic, likable, onstage persona.

Ronny's music is eclectic; a woven tapestry of songs and stories with an over-all arc that eventually comes together and tells something about "the human condition." With the gift of a consummate storyteller, he shares funny, sad and tender moments. Ronny’s song Bus to Baltimore, about Alzheimer’s disease, earned a 2018 Roundglass Music Award for creating “socially responsible music for wellness, environmental consciousness, and peace.”

The Mimbres Region Arts Council is equally pleased that the legendary Buckhorn Opera House will host all of the concerts for the 10th Anniversary season. A rare treat for both performers and audiences, the Buckhorn offers an ambient-rich, “living room” environment for audiences focused on only one thing…the music. Located in Pinos Altos, a short drive from Silver City, one can enjoy a delectable dinner next store at the historic Buckhorn Saloon before experiencing a live performance from some of the most talented singer-songwriters of our time.  

The 10th Anniversary season is possible through sponsorships from Cissy McAndrew of United County Real Estate, Holiday Inn Express of Silver City and promotional support from KURU 89.1 Gila Mimbres Community Radio.
