Two-time Grammy nominee Shemekia Copeland will perform at the next Colorado Riverfront Concert Series concert on Friday, Aug. 2, at James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park, Fruita Section.

Gates will open at 6 p.m., and the show will start at 8 p.m.

Copeland is the daughter of the late Texas blues guitar legend Johnny Clyde Copeland, but she has forged a blues trail of her own. She has opened for the Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and other festivals around the world, performed on stage with Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton and at the White House for President Barack and Michelle Obama, according to Copeland’s bio at concordmusicgroup.com.

“Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, the singer was presented with Taylor’s crown by her daughter, Cookie, on June 12, 2011, at the Chicago Blues Festival and given the honor of the new ‘Queen of the Blues’ by official proclamation of the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois,” the bio said.

Copeland was 19 when she released her debut recording, “Turn the Heat Up!” (1998), to rave reviews. A year later, she appeared in the movie “Three To Tango,” and her song, “I Always Get My Man,” was featured in the film “Broken Hearts Club.”

Her second album, “Wicked” (2000), won three Handy Awards (song of the year, blues album of the year, contemporary female artist of the year) and a Grammy nomination. Copeland’s most recent album, “33 1/3” released in September, also received a Grammy nomination for best blues album.

Tickets to Riverfront Concert Series concerts are available at City Market stores and at TicketsWest.com. The tickets are free, but a small service charge applies at ticket outlets.

At the concert, there will be food vendors, beer, wine, water, soft drinks and lemonade available to purchase. No outside beverages allowed.
