Whether she's belting it out old school Chicago-style or rocking the blues like they do in Texas, the twice Grammy-nominated Shemekia Copeland wows audiences wherever she goes. The daughter of the late guitar legend Johnny Copeland, she's opened for the Rolling Stones and played alongside the legendary Buddy Guy and B.B. King, not to mention hitting the White House stage to perform for President Obama. The Washington Post says, "her powerhouse voice and sassy attitude had people calling her the new Queen of the Blues from the beginning." And it became official at the Chicago Blues Festival when the city of Chicago and state of Illinois bestowed that crown upon her by proclamation, following in the vaunted footsteps of the late Koko Taylor. Her latest disc, 2015's Outskirts of Love, is a Grammy nominee as well. Don't miss this much-anticipated show at Atlanta's Rialto Center for the Arts.
