WATERVILLE — Vocalist Shemekia Copeland, touring in support of her latest Grammy-nominated album, “Outskirts of Love,” will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, April 29, at the Waterville Opera House, 1 Common St.

The three-time Grammy nominee’s wide-open vision of contemporary blues, roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with a modern musical and lyrical approach. Whether she’s belting out a raucous blues-rocker, firing up a blistering soul-shouter, bringing the spirit to a gospel-fueled R&B rave-up or digging deep down into a subtle, country-tinged ballad, Copeland sounds like no one else.

Tickets cost $20-$30, for tickets, call 873-700 or visit www.operahouse.org.
