On Friday, February 8th at 9pm, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island will host a concert with red-hot blues singer SHEMEKIA COPELAND.

From the softest soul whisper to a growling, full-throated blues roar, vocalist Shemekia Copeland sings soul deep.  Her huge, dynamic voice and vibrant personality shine through every song she tackles.  Since the release of her 1998 Alligator debut, Turn The Heat Up; Copeland has conquered the blues world and beyond.  Both mainstream media and blues publications could barely contain their enthusiasm over the young star-on-the-rise.  Billboard referred to her as a “fire-starter”.  With her new album, Wicked, she turns the heat way up, delivering a no-holds-barred collection of hip-shakers and slow-burners.

Shemekia’s passion for singing, matched with her huge, blast-furnace voice and impeccable timing, give her music the timeless power and foot-stomping urgency of a very few greats who have come before her.  Schooled in Texas blues by her father, the late Texas blues guitar legend Johnny Clyde Copeland, the media has compared her to a young Koko Taylor, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, and Ruth Brown.  IMAC is thrilled to welcome such an accomplished young artist to our stage.

Tickets for this performance are $30.00 ($22.50 for IMAC Members). For tickets to this performance, or for other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
