Gig: Robert Cray in Liverpool 13 July 2008
Posted on: Saturday, May 17, 2008
A rare blues gig at The Empire in Liverpool and an even rarer chance to see Robert Cray in the north west.
Robert Cray will play the Empire Theatre on 13 July 2008.
For thirty-plus years Robert Cray has laid down track after track of good-time, uptown, low-down blues. He’s won five Grammys and been nominated for 11 more, inspired critics to praise his soulful vocal and instrumental artistry, earned respect from his peers, and sent young guitarists running back to the woodshed.
From classic titles ‘Phone Booth’, to highlights from his more recent releases ‘Poor Johnny’, whether addressing timeless themes of heartache and romance ‘The Things You Do To Me’ or this morning’s headlines ‘Twenty’, Cray delivers on a promise he’s been making since his first trip into the studio.
Cray’s virtuosity has led to collaborations with luminaries such as Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, B. B. King, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry and Bonnie Raitt.
