The Robert Cray Band 2018
Considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, Cray’s soulful and creative guitar work has been a dominant force in blues for over forty years, widely recognized and acknowledged by peers and audiences alike.
A five time Grammy winner, Cray has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to John Lee Hooker, becoming one of the most popular artists in Blues & Soul music in his own right, and helping steer and shape its course along the way.
A rare opportunity is in store to witness this genre defining artist again test his talent, fuse it together with that dazzling voice, and perform some of the most powerful material in his four-decade long back catalogue….
The support act for Robert Cray will be The Mike Eldred Trio
Voted one of the best guitarists in Americana Roots Blues music, The Mike Eldred Trio is a roots “Super-Band” with Eldred (formerly with Stray Cat Lee Rocker) and John Bazz and Jerry Angel both from The Blasters! Their first CD (The Mike Eldred Trio) sent shock waves throughout the Americanarootsblues community with rave reviews from Brian Setzer among others, and gave Eldred the title “best unknown guitarist”. The band’s second CD (61 and 49) was voted of the Top Ten CD releases of 2011 by the Los Angeles Times.
Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.
