THE ROBERT CRAY BAND WITH SPECIAL GUEST SHEMEKIA COPELAND

April 30, 2015 @ 7:30 pm   |  
Parker Playhouse
| $23.00 - $53.00

Fusing rock, soul, jazz, gospel, funk and R&B, five-time Grammy Award-winner (and 15-time nominee) Robert Cray has racked up millions in album sales over a four-decade career and is widely recognized as one of the greatest guitarists of our time. Get in the groove with Cray’s soothing, soulful voice and crisp, clean guitar work. Rolling Stone magazine credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor sharp guitar playing” that “introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues.” He has written or performed with everyone—from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan and from Bonnie Raitt to Tina Turner. In honor of his incredible talent, he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.  Blues fans won’t want to miss this concert that features special guest Shemekia Copeland, the new “Queen of Blues,” who has scored critics’ choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic and shared the stage  with music luminaries such as Buddy Guy, B.B. King and John Mayer.
