Gospel and Blues is coming to the Center Puttin’ Down Roots July 13

Delve into the multicultural roots of American music with California Center for the Arts, Escondido’s Puttin’ Down Roots music series. This Americana music series will fill the Lyric Court with music every Friday in July.

The Missy Anderson Duo will be on center stage in the Lyric Court with gospel and blues music on Friday, July 13 from 7–9 p.m.

Missy Andersen and her accompanist/husband, Heine Andersen, perform 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 and Americana inspired guitar work.

Noted for his polyrhythmic acoustic style, Heine plays lead and rhythm as well as bass lines simultaneously. With eyes closed, a listener would swear there were at least three musicians present. Add in Missy’s expressive, deep soul vocal delivery plus humorous storytelling and it’s a perfect match of all things good.

Doors for the event will open at 6:15 p.m. Although no RSVP is required and admission is free, RSVPs to this event will be given priority seating. Seating at bistro tables is also available for $12/seat or $40 for a table for 4. Table seating is very limited, so purchase your seats early!
