Robert Cray plays guitar. And he does it really well. The five-time Grammy award winner is friends with Eric Clapton, and he's helping to keep the blues alive, updated and relevant into the 2010s. He'll be at the Ridgefield Playhouse Sunday night. Fun fact: Cray played bass with Otis Day and the Knights in the movie Animal House (but wasn't credited).
