Often compared to the great Koko Taylor, twentysomething Shemekia Copeland is a powerhouse singer who blends aspects of funk blues, R&B, and Memphis soul in the proud tradition of belted-from-the-gut vocalists. Reared by her father, the late Texas bluesman Johnny "Clyde" Copeland in his final performance days, she is no stranger to the lifestyle. Her late uncle was famed keyboardist Floyd Phillips.
Sharing the stage with Ms. Copeland is the legendary B.B. King. Polar opposites on the age spectrum, King's muted guitar should make a nice tandem for her foot stomping, possessed-by-the spirit delivery. The timeless blues is in good, able hands.
