A Shemekia Copeland New Years’ Eve concert is set for 8 p.m. Satruday, Dec. 31,  at Stone Mountain Arts Center, 695 Dugway Road in Brownfield.

Copeland is a powerhouse, musical and lyrical approach. With her new Alligator Records album, “America’s Child,” Copeland confidently announces an electrifying new chapter in her constantly evolving story. Produced by Americana Instrumentalist Of The Year winner Will Kimbrough (who also plays guitar on the album) and recorded in Nashville, “America’s Child” is a courageous and fiery statement of purpose, a major step forward for the singer whose musical consciousness continues to expand as her star continues to rise.

With guests including John Prine, Rhiannon Giddens, Mary Gauthier, Emmylou Harris, Steve Cropper, J.D. Wilkes, Al Perkins and members of the Time Jumpers, “America’s Child” bursts with Copeland’s bravado and embraces with her tenderness.

Tickets cost $85.
