Robert Cray Band

The Robert Cray Band will headline the Maryport Blues Festival main stage on Sunday 25th July. 

Robert Cray, who has worked with such music legends as B.B. King, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and Willie Dixon, is known as one of the most expressive vocalists and impressive guitarists on today’s music scene. During his long-running career, he has blended rhythm and blues, rock, pop, gospel and traditional blues to create a really contemporary blues sound, writing memorable songs that tell the truth about love, loss and broken relationships.

Over the years, his daring musical innovations have won him five Grammy Awards and a worldwide fan base. In his own words: “Blues is one of the foundations of our music, but it’s not all that we play… When I first started playing guitar, I wanted to be George Harrison – that is, until I heard Jimi Hendrix. After that, I wanted to be Albert Collins and Buddy Guy and B.B. King. And then there are singers like O.V. Wright and Bobby Blue Bland. It’s all mixed up in there.” Visit Robert Cray's website for further details. www.robertcray.com
