    April 13, 2013

    What a night at Madison Square Garden! Here's a quick summary of what went down on Night 1 of Eric Clapton's 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival. The show kicked off promptly at 7:30 with Eric's acoustic set where he was joined by long-time friend and former band-member, Andy Fairweather Low, and Vince Gill. The highlight? An emotional version of "Tears In Heaven". They were followed by an incredible set from Stax legends Booker T and Steve Cropper. They were joined by Blake Mills, Keb Mo, Albert Lee and Matt "Guitar Murphy". The first festival "moment"? Doyle Bramhall II's "Green Light Girl", which featured Sharon White and Michelle John and backing vocals.
