Blues vocalist Shemekia Copeland, a three-time Grammy nominee and daughter of legendary blues guitarist Johnny Copeland, is a regular performer at the Falcon at Marlboro. Such is the company that the Falcon keeps, where an endless stream of notables, legends and the next generation pass through the two venues at Tony Falco’s shrine of great music and local beer, seven nights a week. Copeland’s most recent record, the Grammy-nominated Outskirts of Love, is hardly a traditional contemporary blues vocal record. Raw, funky and with some experimental sonics here and there, the album was produced and largely co-written by Oliver Wood of the Wood Brothers.
Shemekia performs at the Falcon on Saturday, September 23 at 7 p.m. There is no cover charge, but donation is encouraged in no uncertain terms. The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro. For more information, visit www.liveatthefalcon.com.
