Shemekia to receive
Bistro Award

Blues singer Shemekia Copeland is the recipient of the Bistro’s first Producer’s Award. Daughter of blues guitarist-singer Johnny Copeland, she displays a powerful, gutsy voice that can also be soft and sultry, and has an uncanny ability to connect to her audience with both songs and stories.

The Bistro Awards has been recognizing, encouraging, nurturing, and educating cabaret, jazz and comedy artists for 33 years through its insightful reviews and annual awards. It is the oldest award of its kind in the industry.

The 33rd Annual Bistro Awards Gala will be held on Monday, March 12 at 6:30 pm at Gotham Comedy Club, 208 W. 23rd St. “As is the Bistro Award tradition, the evening will feature performances by all of the winners,” adds Broadway World.
