Nationally recognized talent Shemekia Copeland will headline the 7th Annual Craft Beers & Blues Festival in Casselberry, on Friday, Nov. 9, 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 Shemekia 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’s 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 for President and Mrs. Obama.
Besides the music, there will be a bevy of craft beers and about 15 gourmet food trucks from The Food Truck Bazaar. Let’s not forget shopping, just in time to get ready for the holidays! The festival includes more than 20 art and specialty vendors displaying their works.
