Shea Theater Arts Center (71 Avenue A, Turners Falls, MA 01376, Turners Falls MA)
Award-winning blues, soul and Americana singer Shemekia Copeland will celebrate the release of her powerful, trailblazing Grammy-nominated Alligator Records album, ***Done Come Too Far***, with a live performance at the Shea Theater Arts Center in Turners Falls on Thursday, June 8, 2023. Possessing one of the most instantly recognizable and deeply soulful roots music voices of our time, Copeland is beloved worldwide for the fearlessness, honesty and humor of her revelatory music, as well as for delivering each song she performs with unmatched passion. Copeland connects with her audience on an intensely personal level, taking them with her on what *The Wall Street Journal* calls “a consequential ride” of “bold and timely blues.”
In addition to receiving a Grammy Award nomination, ***Done Come Too Far*** was honored as the 2022 #1 Blues Album Of The Year by UK tastemaker magazine *MOJO*. The equally influential Americana music site *No Depression* named the release among the top ten best albums of the year. ***Done Come Too Far***'s title track was the #2 most played track on SiriusXM's *Bluesville* channel, where Copeland continues to host her own daily radio program.
She was also recently nominated for four Blues Music Awards for Album Of The Year and Contemporary Blues Album Of The Year (for ***Done Come Too Far***), Song Of The Year (for *Too Far To Be Gone*, written by John Hahn and Will Kimbrough) and Instrumentalist Of The Year (Vocals).
