“Amazingly eclectic”

150905 Shemekia Copeland South Coast Today
“Copeland’s voice is legit. Think Etta James, Koko Taylor, Ruth Brown, Mavis Staples,” writes Lauren Daley in South Coast Today, to announce Shemekia’s headlining show at the 14th Annual Narrows Festival of the Arts, in Fall River, Massachussets, on September 13.

“Her new album, Outskirts of Love, drops two days before her Fall River concert, so she’ll probably —hopefully— sing a few tracks off that, because it’s amazingly eclectic. It’s largely her interpretations of songs by artists including her father, the late Texas guitar legend Johnny Clyde Copeland, to ZZ Top, Solomon Burke, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jesse Winchester, Albert King and, two of my favorites, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.”
