Rare chance to see legendary guitarist

Where: Cheltenham Town Hall

When: Tuesday, October 23, 7.30pm

There's a rare opportunity to see legendary guitarist and singer-songwriter Robert Cray in Cheltenham next week.

His appearance at Cheltenham Town Hall follows the success of his most recent album - the Blues Music Awards-nominated Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm.

Considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, Cray's soulful and creative guitar work has been a dominant force in blues for over 40 years, widely recognised and acknowledged by peers and audiences alike.

A five-time Grammy winner, Cray has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to John Lee Hooker, becoming one of the most popular artists in blues and soul music in his own right, and helping steer and shape its course along the way.

This is a chance to witness this genre-defining artist again test his talent, fuse it together with that dazzling voice, and perform some of the most powerful material in his four-decade long back catalogue.

The support act for Robert Cray will be The Mike Eldred Trio, a roots "super-band".
