SHEMEKIA COPELAND LAUNCHES THE BLUES SERIES NOVEMBER 10 & 11THE 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
