Shemekia Copeland

August 4, 2017

The F.M. Kirby Center announced the return of blues vocal powerhouse Shemekia Copeland on Friday, August 4 at 8:00 p.m. as part of the "Live from the Chandelier Lobby" concert series presented by City Market and Cafe. Tickets can be purchased at the Kirby Center Box Office, by phone at (570) 826-1100 and online at www.kirbycenter.org. 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 Copeland 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. The Chicago Tribune said Copeland delivers "gale force singing and power" with a "unique, gutsy style, vibrant emotional palette and intuitive grasp of the music." NPR Music says she is "fiercely expressive."
