Shemekia Copeland

October 15, 2016 @ 8:00 pm


It’s an honor to welcome to the Avalon stage this year’s Blues Music Award’s Female Artist of the Year for Contemporary Blues!

Whether she’s belting out a raucous blues-rocker, firing up a blistering soul-shouter, bringing the spirit to a gospel-fueled R&B rave-up, or digging deep down into a subtle, country-tinged ballad, Shemekia sounds like no one else.

With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive, and roaring, Shemekia’s wide-open vision of contemporary blues, roots, and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with a modern musical and lyrical approach.
