Robert Cray: A Blues Man For The Ages

{ Friday, May 26th } The Robert Cray Band brings its soulful sound to the Garde Arts Center in New London, Connecticut. 

For more than four decades now, Robert Cray has masterfully bridged the lines between blues, soul, and R&B. Following a stint playing abroad, Cray and his bluesy band have returned Stateside and are making the rounds in New England. At their show on May 26th at the Garde Arts Center in New London, Connecticut, the band will bring the house down with their timeless tunes and highly acclaimed sound. Cray himself has won five Grammys, a suitcase full of W.C. Handy blues awards, and just four years ago, he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. During the ’90s, the Cray Band was featured in concert with artists like Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, BB King and Bonnie Raitt, who declared that Robert Cray is “an original; he’s passionate, he’s a bad ass and puts on one of the best shows you’ll ever see.”
