Brightside Music Presents Shemekia Copeland With The Cash Box Kings

Concert At 7:30 PM On Saturday, October 20, 2018

Brightside Music is happy to welcome Shemekia Copeland to Valparaiso to headline our Blues Fest. Experience one of the greatest voices in blues at a venue that was practically made for it. You won’t want to miss her.
Whether she’s belting out a raucous blues-rocker, firing up a blistering soulshouter, bringing the spirit to a gospel-fueled R&B rave-up or digging deep down to a subtle, country-tinged ballad, Shemekia Copeland sounds like no one else. With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive and roaring, Shemekia’s wide open vision of contemporary blues, roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with a modern musical and lyrical approach.
Copeland has performed thousands of gigs at clubs, festivals and concert halls all over the world during her decades long career. She’s sung with Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, B. B. King, Buddy Guy, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Carlos Santana, James Cotton and many others. She opened for The Rolling Stones and entertained U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait.
With her latest album Outskirts of Love and a packed tour schedule, Copeland has her eyes fixed firmly on the future as she continues to break new musical ground. “I want to be growing, to be innovative,” she says. “I’m a lifert, singing about things that bother me, using my music to help people. My dad always said that ‘we’re all connected.’ I’m an old soul marching to the beat of my own drum,” she continues, “And right now I’m making the most exciting music of my career.
