One of the greatest contemporary blues artists, a five-time Grammy winner who recorded and performed with blues and rock'n'roll icons. Robert Cray - because he is talking about it - will be the star of the 38th edition of the Rawa Blues Festival. The guitarist and vocalist will perform with his band on the stage of the Katowice "Spodek" on 29 September.
Youth, beauty and musical talent - Laura Cox. The French guitarist and vocalist will be one of the stars of this year's edition of the Rawa Blues Festival. The artist will perform with her band on 29th September on the stage of "Spodek". She will be the first headliner from France in the long history of the event. Laura Cox is a representative of a generation who grew up on the internet. She quickly started using the network to promote her guitar skills. Her films, where she presented her own versions of blues and rock classics, have gained over 70 million hits, and the official YouTube channel - over 300,000 subscribers.
On September 28, Marcia Ball with her band and the acoustic duo Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro will perform in the unique concert hall of NOSPR. Marcia Ball has been nominated for the Grammy Award four times, for years she has regularly been collecting Blues Music Awards (named "Blues Oscars") for the best pianist. She belongs to the group of the most important contemporary blues artists. The tradition of Rawa Blues concerts in this place is the selection of performers on the basis of contrast. It will happen this year too. In the first part of the evening, there will be a chamber, acoustic British-American duo Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro. The former is a well-known figure in the blues and folk circles of the Islands, the second - for many years he is a respected session musician. In the second part, the audience will have opportunity to see Marcia Ball with a full band, including the brass section. It's gonna be a great show!
