According to Rolling Stone, the five-time Grammy-winning Stratocaster legend Robert Cray makes “soul-infused blues [that] has become the bridge between traditional and contemporary.” He remains a strong persuader, as potent as ever after three decades of recording and touring. Opening for him will be The Sweet Divines, four young ladies with a fierce band behind them. The group pays homage to the traveling soul revues of the `60s with an authentic sound that evokes Stax, Aretha, James Brown and funky New Orleans. The BBC has exclaimed, “Sign them up, and let them bring the funk to the masses!”(Source)
