Performers at this Event
Robert Cray
Robert Cray Remove performer from this event
The guitarist who brought blues back to the charts in the '80s via songs that defined blues themes but added modern and personal twists. ~ Rovi
Matt Murphy
Matt Murphy Remove performer from this event
Probably best known for playing behind the Blues Brothers (and appearing prominently in their 1980 hit movie), Matt "Guitar" Murphy deserves enshrinement in the blues-guitar hall of fame anyway....
Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal Remove performer from this event
From the beginning, singer/guitarist Taj Mahal had an interest in/gift for rural blues, and has since embraced everything from electric and psychedelic-tinged blues to reggae and calypso....
Allman Brothers Band
Allman Brothers Band Remove performer from this event
Blending rock, blues, country, and jazz, the godfathers of Southern rock in all its wild, woolly glory. ~ Rovi
Jeff Beck
Jeff Beck Remove performer from this event
While he was as innovative as Jimmy Page, as tasteful as Eric Clapton, and nearly as visionary as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck never achieved the same commercial success as any of those contemporaries, primarily because of the haphazard way he approached his career....
Albert Lee
Albert Lee Remove performer from this event
Albert Lee occupies an odd niche in music -- British by birth and upbringing, he spent the mid-'60s as a top R&B guitarist, but in the 1970s became one of the top rockabilly guitarists in the world, and no slouch in country music either....
Robbie Robertson
Robbie Robertson Remove performer from this event
The chief songwriter and lead guitarist of the Band, who later moved into film (acting, producing, scoring) and a solo career. ~ Rovi
Earl Klugh
Earl Klugh Remove performer from this event
The highest praise Duke Ellington would offer people he admired was to say that their music was “beyond category” – and, in many ways, that phrase exactly captures the spirit of GRAMMY® Award-winning guitar virtuoso Earl Klugh and his new, largely solo CD, HandPicked on Heads Up (part of the Concord Music Group)....
Andy Fairweather Low
Andy Fairweather Low Remove performer from this event
The seven million people who bought Eric Clapton's Unplugged album and the countless more who saw the MTV Unplugged TV show experienced the work of Andy Fairweather Low, who served as Clapton's backup guitarist/vocalist....
Sonny Landreth
Sonny Landreth Remove performer from this event
Hailing from Cantor, Mississippi, the blues guitar stylist Sonny Landreth distinguished himself from the general run of blues virtuosos with his distinctive slide technique. In his playing, Landreth accomplishes the seldom duplicated feat of playing slide solos while simultaneously forming supporting chords with his remaining fingers....
Eric Clapton
Eric Clapton Remove performer from this event
The son of a bricklayer, British rock artist Eric Clapton attended Kingston Art School before choosing the quicksilver life of a street musician. Clapton's guitar prowess did not go unrecognized for long, and soon he was aligned with the Yardbirds, a major Mersey-beat band of the 1960s....
Vince Gill

B.B. King
B.B. King Remove performer from this event
Universally hailed as the reigning king of the blues, the legendary B.B. King is without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half century. His bent notes and staccato picking style have influenced legions of contemporary bluesmen, while his gritty and confident voice -- capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric -- provides a worthy match for his passionate playing....
Los Lobos
Los Lobos Remove performer from this event
East L.A. barrio band that draws gracefully from rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues, and traditional Spanish and Mexican music. ~ Rovi
Keb' Mo'

Citizen Cope
Citizen Cope Remove performer from this event
Creates a soulful blend of folk-R&B with laid-back reggaefied beats and the occasional hip-hop flourish. ~ Rovi
Blake Mills
Blake Mills Remove performer from this event
Traditionally, when bands play late night talk shows, they face the cameras and play towards the audience. Virtually every artist does it the same way. This past January on Conan, in his first nationally televised performance as a solo artist, Blake Mills, rather than adapt to the format, bent it to adapt to him....
John Mayer
John Mayer Remove performer from this event
Started playing the guitar at age 13. After high school, took time off to practice his songwriting skills while working at a gas station. In 2005, made a surprise visit to his high school for his Hall of Fame induction but was not allowed to attend the ceremony for security reasons....
Gary Clark Jr.
Gary Clark Jr. Remove performer from this event
Texas guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. has been compared to guitar icons like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his playing is a powerful and inspired mix of blues roots with contemporary soul and hip-hop, and when he’s rolling at his best, he sounds like nothing so much as a natural hybrid of both the past and the future of the blues....
Booker T.
Booker T. Remove performer from this event
Hammond B3 alchemist Booker T Jones is one America's most prolific, distinguished and instantly recognizable musical forces, and the arrival of his new Anti- album, Potato Hole, not only re-affirms his greatness, it also re-introduces the neglected all-instrumental format to a noisy, crowded marketplace crying out for precisely the type of soul satisfying pleasure which Jones excels at....

Nov 21, 2007 - rde on Eric Clapton
Best of a lifetime!

Eric Clapton. That says it all. "Wonderful Tonight", "After Midnight", "Lay Down Sally"- oldies but goodies. However, those oldies are not seen as such to even the youth of today. It's almost as if the younger generation doesn't realize how old those songs really are. Eric Clapton's musical talents are by far among the best of all musicians in the history of music.

Vancouver

I just saw him for the first time and i am blown away....i was just a "normal" fan before, but now i am over the top. It is has changed me, just knowing he is in recovery and hearing the hope and faith in his songs inspires me to continue my journey of recovery. Thank You Keith for your inspiration.
