Here’s another video of Shemekia Copeland (Queen of the Blues) at the Gloucester Blues Festival with yet another powerful song that shows off her band as well as her remarkable voice (see yesterday’s post if you missed the song that gave me the chills).
Who’s that security guy walking in front of the stage at at about :30 seconds into the video? He looks so serious! You wouldn’t wanna mess with him would ya?
It’s a testament to Gloucester’s stature as a music destination that we can attract major international recording artists, the caliber of Shemekia’s Copeland, for our very first Blues Festival. Perhaps it’s because of the tremendously talented musicians who live here.
Don’t take them for granted. Check Cape Ann’s live music schedule and go see them now. Some day you may have to drive an hour and pay a hundred bucks to see artists you can see this weekend right here on Cape Ann for free.
