The next set of inductees into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame have been announced. This February, legendary concert promoter Barry Fey and Denver Folklore Center founder Harry Tuft, two Colorado music icons, will take their rightful place in the hall alongside John Denver and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the inaugural inductees who were entered into the hall this past April. Fey and Tuft are slated to be inducted by comedian Kevin Fitzgerald and eTown founder Nick Forster, respectively, at a ceremonial dinner on Sunday, February 12, at 3 p.m. at Dal Ward Athletic Center on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. VIP tickets for the event are on sale now at Twist & Shout, Pasta Jay's and the Denver Folklore Center for $175 (which covers dinner and comes with an autographed copy of Backstage Past, Tuft's latest CD, a pair of tickets to a Buffs football game and two shows at 1STBANK Center). General-admission tickets are also available for $75, which covers dinner and drinks. A portion of the ticket price goes to the non-profit Colorado Music Hall of Fame.
