Shemekia Copeland at Bamboo Room 5/6
Daughter of the late, great Texas blues master Johnny Copeland, Shemekia is a strong, convincing belter in the tradition of Koko Taylor and Etta James. Raised in Harlem, she got her start filling in for Johnny during his difficult later years and has won scads of blues-snob polls along the way. At 31, she's the sort of singer well worth checking in on here and down the road.
