Acclaimed New Orleans singer-songwriter Mia Borders is still a best-kept secret. But not for long. Hailed for her seamless blending of soul, rock, blues and funk into a unique mix that still manages to beat with a Big Easy heart, Borders will perform a pair of Louisiana Crossroads concerts at the Acadiana Center for the Arts this week — Thursday and Friday, Nov. 15-16.

Borders broke big onto the Crescent City music scene in 2010 with the release of her second full-length album, Magnolia Blue, a record that earned her a nomination for Best Emerging Artist at the Big Easy Music Awards. But Borders didn’t wait around for good things to come — she brought them to the music world, hitting the road and performing with her band at Voodoo Fest, the Taos Mountain Music Fest, the Kennedy Center and the San Jose Jazz Fest, among several major stages.

She’s currently touring in support of her latest album, Wherever There Is, released last April and celebrated as her most ambitious collection of songs to date. Offbeat Magazine put it best: “Note to self: Pay more attention to Mia Borders.”

Mia Borders’ Crossroads performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $15-$25 and can be purchased through the AcA website or by calling (337) 233-7060.
