In soulful blues

Step on out this Saturday night and soak your soul in the blues.

In a tour promoting their latest CD, Time Will Tell, The Robert Cray Band will be performing at Carrboro's Cat's Cradle. A contemporary blues and soul maestro, Cray (pictured left) has been honored with five Grammy Awards, and many agree that his neo-soul breakthrough album, Strong Persuader, helped prompt the '80s blues and roots music revival. The latest CD has a few new flavors (a samba beat, an electric sitar) and songs that dig just as deep into political topics, as they do personal ones. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see The Robert Cray Band as they remain at the top of their musical game.
