Sunday the 10th of September, I had the pleasure of sharing a great evening with Gary Grainger and all the listeners of his show, The Blues Show on Bishop FM 105.9. Thanks for making me feel welcome and allowing the opportunity to play live on your show.

****NEW ALBUM**** ****NEW ALBUM****

We are thrilled to announce the release of Robbie Reay's latest album Barefoot Blues.

This album was produced to accompany the book previously released.

Available NOW to download on CD Baby and iTunes, please follow the links below.

The CD will also be available very soon, keep checking in for availability.

Robbie Reay is thrilled to announce his newly published book, exclusively available on this website for only £6.00 plus post and packing. Get your order in early before the Christmas rush either for you, or a loved one who loves anything about the blues.

Barefoot Bluesman Paul ‘Robbie Reay’ takes you on a soul-searching journey to find the crossroads, the real crossroads. He attempts to make sense of the Faustian myth that is selling your soul to the devil down at the crossroads. This book reflects his journey, with many references and facts, which will act as a guide for future blues pilgrims wishing to find their way home.

Robbie Reay and The Killer Cats played on Sunday evening  at the Spittal Seaside Festival. It was a great line-up, we played at quarter to 8 on the 14th of August 2016, with a six piece on stage to rock the marquee down. A big thank you to all involved and thanks to Martin Yves for stepping in as wingman on guitar, it was a pleasure to have you on board.

Described  as "Like drinking whisky through your ears" Fully original Blues Album by a talented singer-songwriter-guitarist. With a soulful blend of melodies on cigar box guitar and subtle hints of harmonica, this album breathes a unique blend of Raw and emotive spirit

On Thursday the 26th of November 2015 we played live on air to promote the new album The Jekyll Can't Hide. Thanks to all the listeners of Jolly Roger's Blues & Roots Radio Show at Lionheart Radio today. A BIG thank you to Jolly Roger's Radio Shows for inviting us to the studio for some live playing and talking about the new album The Jekyll Can't Hide. Thanks to William Cran for his great harp playin', can't wait for our next performance with the whole band. We will keep you posted on the next gig venue.

On the 2nd October 2015 my son Ozzy accompanied me playing at the 'We Shall Overcome' open mic night in Berwick Upon Tweed at the Kazmiranda Café. This was the first time I tried playing some tracks from the new album, which went down really well. I think all of the credit goes to my talented son Ozzy for his amazing Ukulele playing.

Holy Island Festival  25-28th of June 2015 with Ray Laidlaw and Billy Mitchell. The highlight of this year was hanging out with these two great guys from Lindisfarne on lindisfarne, in front of Lindisfarne Mead.

We enjoyed a great gig in The Crown & Anchor Pub Lindisfarne, as part of the first ever festival on the Island. The band members were organised at the last minute. Thanks to Will, Chris, Robert, Martyn & of course Ray Laidlaw and Billy Mitchell.

I can highly recommend the Crown and Anchor for their amazing hospitality and first rate food.
