Robert Cray. It must have been the twentieth time I've seen him, but he just blew me away at The Birchmere on Sept 28, 2021. One of his shows where he really let loose on his guitar. Robert puts on a very well rehearsed and clean performance, but every once in a while, he just seems to let his fingers go and play - really play - his guitar.
One of the most talented blues guitarists alive - Robert can get amazing tones and feelings out of his guitar at will. I'm very glad this night in September was one of them. I could see a whole Robert Cray show, with only a few tunes with lyrics. His guitar playing is mesmerizing. And his voice is as sweet and soulful as ever, With his long-time bassist, Richard Cousins, Robetr squeezes all the sound possible out of each tune, and he has a lot of songs! I hope to be seeing Robert live for many many years to come.
