Eric Clapton's Festival With A Cause
Over the course of an almost six-decade-spanning career, iconic English classic rock icon Eric Clapton has brought joy to millions of fans with his bluesy licks, insightful lyrics and satisfying songcraft. Yet the 18-time Grammy Award-winning legend has experienced both personal tragedy and the dark side of rock and roll, falling into a spiral of drug abuse and alcoholism over the years. In 1998 he founded the Crossroads Centre, a rehabilitation and treatment facility based in Antigua to help others through the same struggles he eventually overcame, and has been raising funds for the organisation with the annual Crossroads Guitar Festival since 1999.
Celebrating the brightest musicians on the six stringed instrument, the festival returns to Dallas this fall with a thrilling line-up of musicians young and old from across a bright spectrum of genres and styles. Clapton has invited the likes Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Gary Clark Jr, Peter Frampton, Sheryl Crow (who performed at the inaugural festival), Los Lobos, Keb Mo and Tom Misch amongst others to collaborate and perform together during the two day event at the American Airlines Center.
