The Philharmonic Liverpool
For thirty-plus years Robert Cray has laid down track after track of good-time, low-down blues. He’s won five Grammy’s and been nominated for 11 more. Cray’s virtuosity has led to collaborations with Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry and Bonnie Raitt. His new album This Time arrives at a vital juncture in the musician’s career, marked by creative renewal and a key reunion with an old performing partner, bassist Richard Cousins. Cray and his band are sounding superb.
Support is from the ever excellent Andy Fairweather Low.
