SHEMEKIA COPELAND LAUNCHES THE BLUES SERIES NOVEMBER 10 & 11—THE ALLEN ROOM

There is a reason they call Shemekia Copeland the torch bearer for Queen of the Blues. Rare is the New York native who has been ranked as one of the world's top blues performers, but that is the case with this whirlwind dynamo of a singer. She can belt out old school Chicago-style Koko Taylor, or rock the blues like they do in Texas, a trait she gets by her birthright as the daughter of Houston blues legend Johnny Copeland. Despite her youth, she has nearly two decades of touring experience and owns any stage she's on. This is the inaugural concert of the Blues Series at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Thursday & Friday, November 10 & 11, 2011, 7:30pm & 9:30pm

The Allen Room at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York.

Ticket prices are $55 & $65, dependent on performance time.

All tickets can be purchased through jalc.org or CenterCharge at 212-721-6500, open daily from 10am to 9pm. Tickets can also be purchased at the Jazz at Lincoln Center Box Office, located on Broadway at 60th Street, ground floor. Box Office hours: Monday-Saturday from 10am to 6pm (or 30 minutes past curtain) and Sunday from noon to 6pm (or 30 minutes past curtain).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
