Simply stated, without the Blues, there is no Jazz. Nor, for that matter, so much of the popular music that America has exported to the world, from R&B to Rock N' Roll to Hip Hop.
We bring two generations of Blues stars to The Smith Center stage. Keb Mo – 3 time GRAMMY award winning singer/guitarist, movie and tv star, who is considered the living link to the Delta Blues… Keb is the 10-time winner of the prestigious W.C. Handy Blues award. His recent performance at the White house was legendary.
Joining Keb' for this special Blues spectacular is Shemekia Copeland, who literally grew up surrounded by the Blues… As the daughter of the great guitar legend Johnny Copeland… She has kept the family tradition alive and thriving.Tonight The Smith Center Celebrates The Blues!!!
