Blues artist Robert Cray’s razor-sharp guitar playing and soulful vocals have earned him an impressive 40-year career. One of the greatest guitarists of our time, he’s earned five Grammy awards, been honored with a spot in the Blues Hall of Fame and is renowned for his live shows. Cray continues to play sold-out shows around the globe with the trademark sound that’s seen him write or perform with such esteemed musicians as Eric Clapton, John Lee Hooker, Bonnie Raitt and Stevie Ray Vaughan. With an arsenal of hits including “Smoking Gun” and “I Can’t Fail,” a Robert Cray show is a nonstop showcase of blues and rock jams. See him at McAninch Arts Center in Glen Ellyn.
