Legendary guitarist and singer-songwriter Robert Cray returns to the UK in Spring 2021 to support the release of his new album, ‘That’s What I Heard’, celebrating the music of Curtis Mayfield, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Sensational Nightingales and more, alongside four newly written songs.
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….
Support is from Zervas and Pepper, a musical duo from Cardiff.
This is the show postponed from 16 May 2020 (via 2 May 2021). All tickets are valid for the new date.
Robert says: “Hopefully everyone can make the dates when we return, also I’d like to remind everybody to be safe and take care of yourselves and we’ll see you when we come through”
