CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Robert Cray is, quite simply, the man. His recordings helped fuel the '80s blues revival and, with a bedrock in the blues, he has since explored R&B, soul, jazz and gospel. Cray has earned no less than five Grammys, and you'll hear why when he is featured at Sunday's "Mountain Stage" starting at 7 p.m. at the Culture Center Theater.
The strong line-up continues with award-winning blues singer Shemekia Copeland, the romantic bohemian gypsy swing group Caravan of Thieves and singer/songwriter Kelly Hogan, who has fronted The Jody Grind and Rock*A*Teens.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $25 at the door. Get them at Taylor Books, online or by phone. Call 800-549-TIXX or visit www.mountainstage.org.
