Videos: Two full songs from Slowhand’s Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013
On April 12 and 13 in New York City, Eric Clapton once again assembled a top-notch line-up of the world’s most celebrated guitarists for the fourth incarnation of his legendary Crossroads Guitar Festival.
While the previous three festivals were all hosted in sprawling outdoor stadiums, Clapton took the festivities indoors for the first time this year to Madison Square Garden.
Held every three years since 2004, the Crossroads Guitar Festival has quickly become the ultimate guitar-concert event, where the world’s greatest players perform together to raise funds for the Crossroads Centre in Antigua. Clapton founded this treatment and education facility in 1998 to help people suffering from chemical dependency.
This year’s festival featured two different nights of music with performances by Clapton, the Allman Brothers Band, Blake Mills, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II, Gary Clark Jr., Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Keith Richards, Keith Urban, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, Steve Cropper, Vince Gill, Warren Haynes and more.
