SAF: Youth Hip-Hop and Rap Night



The “Freshman Year” live hip-hop and rap show at the Sheridan Opera House features the lyrical styling of SkoolkidD with DJ Soulatomic spinning beats. The additional guests include Young Jot, Kidd Swag, Eddy J, Mini Mike, and J Skywalker. Some rappers, such as SkoolkidD and Mini Mike, hail from right here in Telluride, while others are travelling from as far as Miami to perform (J Skywalker). Artist ages range from 10 – 18 years old.

This free show is sponsored by the Sheridan Arts Foundation in hopes to provide a little more youth entertainment in Telluride throughout the long summer months. Having been approached by SkoolkidD with an interest to perform on the Sheridan Opera House stage, the SAF figured this would be a great opportunity for young artists to showcase their talents, as well as an exciting night for kids to go out and enjoy free entertainment. The show will feature a variety of both solo and group performances, as well as free-style and pre-written raps. Local DJ Soulatomic will be spinning backup beats throughout the show, as well as playing house music in between acts and at the end of the performance. Come out to hear these young artists share their views on love, life, and success through their music.

This free event is open to all ages and will take place at the Sheridan Opera House on July 30th. Doors open at 5:30, and the concert will be from 6 - 9pm.
