It’s a good time to give Good Morning Gloucester the news on our headliner for the Gloucester Blues Festival taking place in Stage Fort Park on Saturday, August 11th.
Shemekia Copeland is at the top of her game, and will thrill the blues lovers at Stage Fort Park this August. She performed earlier this week at the White House for President Barack Obama and shared the stage with blues luminaries like Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Jeff Beck, Keb Mo, Warren Haynes and Trombone Shorty.
On Monday night at 9:00 p.m., PBS will be broadcasting the show: “In Performance at the White House Red, White and Blues”. I urge our friends to tune in and get a small sampling of the powerful voice of Shemekia Copeland, the Queen of the Blues.
The Gloucester Blues Festival is a Paul Benjamin/Bob Hastings Production. Paul Benjamin is the producer of the North Atlantic Blues Festival in Rockland, Maine which attracts 16,000 people to the Maine waterfront each July:
We promise to bring the finest in blues to Gloucester this summer. We will be releasing the names of other performers in the weeks ahead.
