With five Grammy Awards, 15 Grammy nominations, millions of record sales worldwide, and thousands of sold out performances, blues rock icon Robert Cray is considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation.
Rolling Stone Magazine credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor sharp guitar playing” and credits his 1986 breakthrough album Strong Persuader with introducing a new generation of rock fans to the blues.
A consummate performer, Cray has written and played with blues luminaries ranging from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughn, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Recently inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. 2012 saw Robert release his sixteenth studio album and embark on yet another world tour. Don’t miss his stop in Poway, a must-see for blues fans of any generation!
