Paulo Franco, a Richmond-based singer-songwriter, and Los Alacranes de R.V.A., will perform on the Family Stage presented by JAMinc at the Richmond Folk Festival on Saturday, October 14 from 12:00 – 12:45 PM. Paulo, who is an attorney by day and popular musician at night, embraces his heritage as a first-generation American, drawing from his Colombian immigrant roots for inspiration. His musical journey began as a child, introduced to country music through Johnny Cash and rock ‘n’ roll via The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. Paulo’s passion for music led him to pick up a classical guitar at the age of nine, marking the birth of a musician. After honing his skills in cover bands, he earnestly started writing his own songs in 2010, infusing storytelling into his music, often based on his own life experiences. Paulo’s unique style seamlessly blends influences from Los Lobos, The Mavericks, The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead, and traditional Latin and Colombian.

Also highlighted is My Music Starts Here which is “on a mission to give all children quality musical experiences”. (Full Article)
