Local artist Mia Borders had only dreamed of days like this. The thought of performing here alone seemed like a high aspiration, yet Saturday afternoon, Borders took to the main stage. A local artist, Borders’ musical journey primarily started due to a physical setback. Rheumatoid Arthritis forced her out of sports, so she switched teams to music, first picking up the guitar at age ten. Like Fitz and the Tantrums’ Noelle Scaggs, Borders had sung plenty of times in public, but never considered making a career out of it. With the help of her brother and a family friend, she started her first band. Borders’ powerful voice contrasted perfectly with her staccato guitar playing; at this point, there is no way her strong set went without notice.
