Robert Cray at the Lexington Opera House
December 11, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
‘The volunteers of the Troubadour Concert Series and Highbridge Springwater are roud to present a celebration of the blues with five-time Grammy Award winner ROBERT CRAY.
Cray started playing guitar in his early teensl in Newport News, Virginia, his love of blues and soul music flourished as he started collecting records. Originally, he wanted to become an architect, but around the same time that he began to study architectural design music took over.
Cray was an opening act for such major stars as Eric Clapton and supported Eric Clapton on his 2006-2007 world tour. Cray played alongside John Lee Hooker on his album Boom Boom, playing the guitar solo in the song “Same Old Blues Again”. He is also featured on the Hooker album, The Healer; he plays a guitar solo on the song “Baby Lee”. The entire Robert Cray Band backs Hooker on the title track of Hooker’s 1992 album “Mr. Lucky”, where Cray plays lead guitar, sings, and banters with Hooker throughout the song.’
