Just a Ghetto Child in Gloucester

Shemekia Copeland’s astounding performance was the climax of Gloucester’s Blues Festival 2 weeks ago.  We blogged all day from the festival, but never showed you any of Shemekia’s set — so here you go:  In this video, she walks the crowd singing without a mic, while the band plays from the stage.  Perfect mix; powerful music; gave me the chills.

We’ve had a busy month of festivals, here in Gloucester.  This weekend we’ve got 28 artists in 16 venues — two of which are schooners. And that’s just Friday & Saturday (see the Friday & Saturday live music lineup here).  You’d think it was another festival.  Nope.  Just more evidence of Cape Ann’s thriving music scene.

Start the weekend a little early with the epic Seafood Throwdown rematch today at 4pm at the Farmer’s Market at Stage Fort Park.  Then the Harbor Loop Concert – 12 live music choices in all.  See tonight’s live music lineup here.
