Down To The Crossroads

The Crossroads Guitar Festival is a music festival and benefit concert first held in 2004 and again in 2007 and 2010. The festivals benefit the Crossroads Centre founded by Eric Clapton, a drug treatment center located in Antigua. The concerts are also intended to be a showcase for a variety of guitarists. All were hand-picked by Eric Clapton himself, who addressed the 2007 audience, saying that each were some of the very best, and those who had earned his respect.
The festival will be held on April 12-13, 2013, at Madison Square Garden


These are arguably some of my favorite concert DVDs, and has such a great lineup every year. Legends like B.B. King, Eric Clapton, and Buddy Guy meet younger guitarist like Derek Trucks, Joe Bonasmassa, and Robert Randolph for some some great blues music. I discovered Gary Clark Jr. on the 2010 DVD, and became a big fan instantly.

Has anyone gone to the any of the previous festivals or plan on going to the one in 2013?

The 2013 lineup is as follows:
Jeff Beck
Dave Biller
Booker T
Doyle Bramhall II
Allman Brothers Band
Gary Clark Jr.
Eric Clapton
Citizen Cope
Robert Cray
Andy Fairweather Low
Vince Gill
John Mayer
Blake Mills
Keb Mo
Brad Paisley
Robert Randolph
Kurt Rosenwinkel
Robbie Robertson
John Scofield
Keith Urban
Jimmy Vaughan
Buddy Guy
Allan Holdsworth
BB King
Earl Klugh
Sonny Landreth
Jonny Lang
Albert Lee
Los Lobos
Taj Mahal



Here are some of my favorites from the shows:

Gary Clark Jr. - Bright Lights

Robert Randolph, Joe Bonamassa, Pino Daniele - Going Down

Derek Trucks/ Susan Tedeschi/ Tedeschi Trucks Band - Midnight In Harlem

Jeff Beck - Big Block

Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood - Crossroads

John Mayer - Ain't No Sunshine

Buddy Guy, Ron Wood, and Jonny Lang - Five Long Years



Feel free to post some of yours, these DVDs have some good stuff.

I'll take any good blues for that matter.

Brad Paisley

He can really make a mess out of song just by opening his mouth

Not a fan of his voice, but the guy can play guitar there's no doubt about that.

Clapton is trying to broaden the range of the festival with some country guys. Keith Urban and Brad Paisley are both talented guitarists with blues roots, so I can respect the additions. It is after all a guitar festival.

If it wasn't right before Jazzfest, I'd probably give serious thought to it also. What a lineup!
