Robert Cray Band

With 5 Grammy Awards, 15 nominations, millions of record sales worldwide, and thousands of sold out performances, rock blues icon Robert Cray is considered “one of the greatest guitarists of his generation.” Rolling Stone Magazine in their April 2011 issue 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” with the release of his Strong Persuader album in 1986.

Since then, Cray has gone on to record fifteen Billboard charting studio albums and has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Recently inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. And while he can look back over an astonishing three-decade career punctuated by his trademark sound and distinct playing style, Robert Cray is too busy moving forward on an amazing journey that has him releasing his sixteenth studio album and embarking on yet another world tour.

Opening for the Robert Cray Band will be Mary Ann Redmond

Singer-songwriter Mary Ann Redmond is described by Billboard magazine as “an exciting vocal talent… wowing club audiences as a completely formed stylist”.

Ms. Redmond has won 22 Washington Area music Awards (Wammies).  Three Wammies were awarded  this year for Female Blues/ Trad R&B vocalist, Songwriter of the Year with Todd Wright and Song of the Year, “Love Me Anyway”, with Todd Wright.  “Love Me Anyway”  was released this past November as a French duet by Celine Dion and Johnny Hallyday.
