Aurora Fox Virtual Cultural Concerts on Colfax MLK Tribute | YourHub – The Know

Celebrate a Martin Luther King Jr. tribute with the metro area’s largest and longest-running multi-cultural, multi-collaborative cultural concert series featuring  Grammy Award nominee,  Shane Franklin “SF1”  live-streaming Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 1:00 pm-1:45pm. Free and available for public viewing.

The Colorado Folk Arts Council in conjunction with the Aurora Fox Theater, Chicano Humanities Arts Council and Metropolitan State University of Denver Journey Through Our Heritage present this mini tribute to MLK as part of their Cultural Concerts on Colfax series.

 Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an important holiday throughout the nation. This auspicious anniversary is one of the United States’ largest community events. Yet it is in the smallest of ways that the great civil rights leader is best remembered.

Join us in paying tribute to this great humanitarian. The virtual concert, A Rhythmic Journey features Franklin, who is an accomplished emcee, drummer, music producer, songwriter dancer and actor. Franklin is a Berklee College of Music alumni who hails from Denver. Performing live, a skilled ensemble of talented musicians from “The Crew” will accompany him onstage at the Aurora Fox. Their accolades include three Westword Magazine Music Awards in the hip-hop category. SF1 and The Crew are the first and only hip-hop act to play major league baseball’s Coors Field.  

Franklin’s singles “Autopilot,” “Rhapsody,” “Ride” and most recently “Honest” have received airplay with iHeart Radio Stations. SF1 has shared stages with the likes of national recording artist, Jake Miller, Robert Delong, Jurassic 5, Big Data, Lupe Fiasco and the legendary KRS-One. A hip-hop artist that refuses to be put in a box, his genuine love for music instrumentation is evident in his ability to effortlessly infuse jazz, Afro-Cuban, Middle Eastern, pop and rock within his energetic sound and compelling live performances.
