In her early 30s, Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues music world. Her passion for singing, matched with her huge, blast-furnace voice, gives her music a timeless power and a heart-pounding urgency. Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, Copeland has already shared the stage with legends such as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton.
This performance is in the 1200 Club. The 1200 Club transforms the Holland Performing Arts Center's most intimate venue, the Suzanne and Walter Scott Recital Hall, into a relaxed nightclub setting where patrons can experience performances by nationally and internationally known artists in jazz, blues and comedy. While enjoying the evening's entertainment, audience members may enjoy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails served right to their candle-lit table.
