Shemekia Copeland performing “Dirty Water” live at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago. Shemekia Copeland is the daughter of the late Texas bluesman, Johnny Copeland. She’s been officially called the new “Queen of the Blues” by none other than Koko Taylor’s daughter, Cookie Taylor! Shemekia has released a new album, “33/13.” I’ve seen Shemekia Copeland perform 3 times so far – she always puts on a great show! I also saw her dad, Johnny Copeland a couple times and he was terrific too! I’ll be featuring something from him sometime down the line.
