Grammy Award-winning guitar superstar Eric Clapton has re-teamed with fellow "guitar gods" for a third Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago, America’s Blues Capital. Shining a spotlight on the wide variety of guitar virtuosity, the gathering further expands the diverse range of musicianship in many musical genres, including blues, bluegrass, country, rhythm & blues and more. The show features performances by Robert Cray, Hubert Sumlin (Howlin’ Wolf’s guitarist), Jimmie Vaughan, Sonny Landreth, Gary Clark, Jr., Keb’ Mo’ and Buddy Guy, B.B. King, ZZ Top, Jeff Beck, the John Mayer Trio, Doyle Bramhall II, the Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band, Warren Haynes and Steve Winwood, Vince Gill, James Burton, Jeff Beck, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Wood, Robert Randolph, Jonny Lang, Joe Bonamassa, Pino Daniele, and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas. Bill Murray returns to host. Writing for The New York Times, Jon Pareles noted, "Crossroads was a decidedly old-fashioned rock event. Every note, give or take an echo effect, was played by hand."
