Crossroads Guitar Festival


Big gig Saturday in Chicago, it is the Crossroads Guitar Festival. It is hard to tell from the website if there are any tickets left. You might want to check out the website here. As you know this is an Eric Clapton event, and features a ton of great guitar players. Here is a list of who will be there.

Jeff Beck, Doyle Bramhall II, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, Buddy Guy, BB King, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Sonny Landreth, Albert Lee, Los Lobos, John Mayer, John McLaughlin, Willie Nelson, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Robbie Robertson, Hubert Sumlin, The Derek Trucks Band, Jimmie Vaughan, Johnny Winter, and Steve Winwood.



Of course, I can guarantee that a lot of misinformation about Robert Johnson will be spread about him. Given that the festival is named after one of Robert's most misunderstood songs, and the myth that has grown around it, thanks to Tommy Johnson, and Son House. However, it should be a good show. If you can make it to the show, just ignore the history:-)
