Show Info

The Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation is proud to welcome Shemekia Copeland for its annual Tinner Hill Blues Festival kick-off. The Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation was founded in 1997 to preserve the early civil rights history of Falls Church and vicinity. For more information, check out their website here. While only in her early 30s, two-time GRAMMY? nominee Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues. She?s opened for the Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous festivals around the world, scored critics choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic (The New York Times and The Times of London), shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, and has even performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama. Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, the singer was presented with Taylor?s crown by her daughter, Cookie, on June 12, 2011 at the Chicago Blues Festival and given the honor of the new ?Queen of the Blues? by official proclamation of the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois. 18 and up to enter.
