RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Six-string blues rock legend Robert Cray is returning to The Ridgefield Playhouse.
He will perform Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 8 p.m.
Cray is known for his hits “Smoking Gun,” “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” and “Just A Loser,” among others.
He has earned five Grammy Awards, 15 nominations, millions of record sales worldwide and has had thousands of sold out performances.
Cray has recorded 15 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.
Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the honor.
Cray cites Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy and B.B. King as formative guitar influences, alongside singers like Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland, but just as pivotal for him was witnessing Albert Collins play a set at his high school dance.
