Shemekia Copeland to perform at UAA June 15
by Kathleen McCoy |
Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues. She's opened with Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous other festivals around the world. She has shared the stage with such luminaries such as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Taj Mahal and John Mayer. Her father was the late Texas blue guitar legend Johnny Clyde Copeland. Shemekia's second album, Wicked, in 2000, scored three Handy Awards (Song of the Year, Blues Album of the Year, Contemporary Female Artist of the Year) and a GRAMMY nomination.
