Shemekia Copeland’s volcanic delivery returns to Mammoth!

March 21st, 2016 | , HarvestMoon

Shemekiah Copeland will perform at the Mammoth Festival of Beers & Bluesapalooza 2016, in Mammoth Lakes, California

GRAMMY® nominee Shemekia Copeland and her “blast-furnace voice” are already a force to be reckoned within the blues world. She has headlined the Chicago Blues Festival, shared the stage with blues giants Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, performed at the White House, and was declared the new “Queen of the Blues” by official proclamation of the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois. How can it get any better than that?

It certainly does with her her latest CD, Outskirts of Love. It’s number five this year in the Billboard Top Blues Albums chart, having also been been awarded this year as her third GRAMMY® nomination for Best Blues Album. Mojo Magazine says this album is “so super-special … spectacular, stirring, sanctified, and sassy … at the crossroads where funk meets blues rock.” Yep, we agree. Shemekia is better than ever, and this album shows once again she’s one of the strongest and best vocalists in the contemporary blues game. She’s back at it, and we’re ready for her fiery blues in Mammoth!
