SaRon Crenshaw Blues Performance

SaRon Crenshaw Blues Performance

BRAC is pleased to present a virtual performing arts festival to celebrate the great contributions to American music and dance by African and Latina Americans. Through such genres as Mississippi Delta ragtime and Jazz, Tennessee Blues and R&B, Philadelphia Soul, New York Jazz, Salsa and Boogaloo and the birth of Hip Hop in the Bronx, musicians of the African and Latina diaspora have been at the forefront of music innovation since the drumming circles of Congo Square in New Orleans and the mid-20th Century migration of Latinas from the Caribbean.

This festival, “Congo Square (New Orleans) to West Farms Square (The Bronx): Jazz and Blues to Boogaloo and Hip Hop”, will offer virtual performances, arts education and community engagement over three weeks in June.

Bronx River Art Center continues its virtual performing arts festival to celebrate the great contributions to American music and dance by African and Latin Americans.

Our June Performing Arts Festival continues with a virtual performance by Blues legend SaRon Crenshaw on June 25th at 7PM.

SaRon Crenshaw has loved music since childhood, learning to play guitar at the age of ten. He travels the U.S. and Europe playing Jazz and Rhythm and Blues in the style of B.B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy, and was recently inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Mr. Crenshaw is a masterful performer with an electric stage presence and ability to draw audiences deep into his performance. Mr. Crenshaw will share his energy and talent with the BRAC community in what is sure to be a memorable performance!

BRAC's Performing Arts Festival continues with a compelling performance by Frank Antonio López AKA “Lumi” with Dr. Drum on June 30th.

Lumi and Dr. Drum (originally of the Peace Poets) are musicians that celebrate, examine and advocate for life through music and poetry. They’ve helped invigorate the social movements of our time with chants and songs. They hail from The Bronx and have performed across the world in over 40 countries. They’ve rocked the mic in prisons, schools, community centers, clubs, rallies, refugee camps and on the blocks they live on. Fortified with the belief that the cypher is the opposite of prison, they are committed to raising up the power of the people to be creative and connected.
