Eric Clapton is on PBS TONIGHT


In the summer of 2004, a spectacular gathering of musicians from across the guitar world performed together at Eric Clapton's three-day Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas.

GREAT PERFORMANCES presents highlights from the unprecedented event featuring a once-in-a-lifetime showcase of guitar luminaries performing rock anthems, blues classics, and bluegrass hits.

Joining Clapton are fellow axe legends Carlos Santana, Joe Walsh, and J.J. Cale; bluesmen Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Hubert Sumlin, and Jimmie Vaughan; as well as James Taylor, country superstar Vince Gill, bluegrass player Dan Tyminski from Alison Krauss' band Union Station, and young star John Mayer.

Highlights include renditions of classics like "After Midnight" and "Layla," as well as recent hits like Mayer's "City Love."

Mrs. Linklater is giving up Law and Order for this.
