Shemekia Copeland Headlines Craft Beer & Blues Festival in Casselberry FL Nov 9, 2018

7th Annual Craft Beer 
& Blues Festival

Nationally recognized talent Shemekia Copeland will headline the 7th Annual Craft Beers & Blues Festival in Casselberry, on Friday, Nov. 9,  2018 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Lake Concord Park along with the regular scheduled Art & Music in the Park and Food Truck Bazaar event. The free event, sponsored by the City of Casselberry and the Orange Blossom Blues Society, is excited to present Copeland, an acclaimed vocalist whose voice has been called “a national treasure.”

Copeland has taken her talents all over the world, appearing on national television, NPR, and in newspapers, films and magazines. She has sung with Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Keith Richards, Carlos Santana, and many others. She opened for The Rolling Stones and entertained U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait.   In 2012, she performed with B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Buddy Guy, Trombone Shorty, Gary Clark, Jr. and others at the White House.

Copeland never holds back. Her instantly recognizable voice -- capable of being sultry, assertive and roaring -- delivers every song with unparalleled honesty and passion. Her wide-open vision of contemporary Americana roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with an up-to-the-minute musical and lyrical approach. With her recent album, America’s Child, Copeland confidently announces an electrifying new chapter in her constantly evolving story. 

The opening act for big night night of blues is guitarist Joel DaSilva, who grew up in Chicago and has played with the likes of B.B. King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and A.C. Reed. He has opened for The Black Crowes, Jeff Beck and Jimmie Vaughan. 

Besides the music, there will be a bevy of craft beers and about 15 gourmet food trucks from The Food Truck Bazaar. The festival includes more than 20 art and specialty vendors displaying their works. 

Disabled parking and drop-off is next to the Casselberry Art House (127 Quail Pond Circle) and the front of the Casselberry Police Department (4195 S US Hwy 17-92).  General parking is located at surrounding businesses.

The Casselberry Art & Music in the Park and Food Truck Bazaar is held the second Friday of each month from 6 – 9 p.m. at Lake Concord Park.
