Shemekia Copeland | Trapp Family Lodge Concert Meadow | Music | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice


Shemekia Copeland

When: Sun., Aug. 3, 7 p.m. 2014

Shemekia Copeland has the blues in her blood. The daughter of late blues guitar legend Johnny Copeland, she grew up surrounded by music. A natural singer, Copeland resisted the spotlight until her teens, when she embraced her talent and never looked back. Dubbed “the next Tina Turner” by Robert Plant, the two-time Grammy Award nominee has headlined the Chicago Blues Festival and performed with Buddy Guy and B.B. King, among other icons. Channeling her Harlem roots, Copeland belts out big notes as part of the Music in the Meadow concert series.
