– The Mimbres Region Arts Council, in conjunction with premier sponsor Cissy McAndrew/United County Mimbres Realty, lodging sponsor Holiday Inn Express, and Gila Mimbres Community Radio, announces the first concert for the 2018-19 Indie Folk Series. Alexa Rose takes the stage Saturday, November 17 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.
Carolina songstress Alexa Rose crafts clever lyrics and boot-tapping mountain magic in her own brand of modern folk. She has spent her formative years curating original music in the Blue Ridge, releasing two albums in her early twenties. You can often catch her sporting her dusty Frye boots in some southern lagoon, or on the regional radio stations that spin her latest full-length release, "Low and Lonesome." Written on a hand me down guitar from her mother, the title track is a toast to Rose's heritage, and its anthem-like chorus haunts the listener with a somberness evocative of Gillian Welch.
When asked which aspects of her music she hoped listeners would take away, Rose answered: "A sense of place of which they are a part. Once, after a show, an audience member said, ‘I felt like I was sitting on my grandparents’ porch listening to June Carter!’” We are mountain people curating art that is inseparable from our upbringing in the regional music and tradition of Appalachia and of the American South. This informs not only our playing style, but also the way we tell the stories within the songs — from homegrown tomatoes to heartbreaks. We want people to feel as good listening to our stuff as we feel when we play it."
Don’t miss out on the chance to hear Alexa Rose at the historic and intimate Buckhorn Opera House. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the performance begins at 7:30 pm.
