Crossroads Festival 2013 Includes Trio of Country’s Best Players
Three of country music's finest gutarists are set to participate in Eric Clapton's 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival in April, as Vince Gill, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban will join Clapton and a host of other notable guitar slingers across several musical genres at the two-day event.
Taking place April 12-13, 2013, at Madison Square Garden in new York City, the fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival will also feature B.B. King, Albert Lee, John Mayer, Keb Mo, Robbie Robertson and many more. For a complete listing, visit the official Crossroads Guitar Festival website.
All the profits of the festival will benefit Clapton's Crossroads Center in Antigua, which educates and treats people who are chemically-dependent. Previous festivals took place in 2004, 2007 and 2010.
While this year will mark the first appearances for Keith and Brad, Vince has performed at all three prior events. Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, and Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas are among the acts to have performed at the festival in past years. The 2013 concerts mark the first time the festival will take place in New York City.
