Wow. What a line up. One name is missing though... sad

Re: Crossroads Guitar Festival 2019

Joe's tour does end in August, so there's still time for his name to be added. He played at the 2010 festival, but that's the only one he's done. John Mayer's name is absent as well this time for now.

Re: Crossroads Guitar Festival 2019

It would have been nice to see at least one of the top 3 blues guitarists in the list, namely: Matt Schofield, Kirk Fletcher or Josh Smith

First, thanks Jane for the artists list.  Crossroads is always such a varied group of established and rising stars in the opinion of Clapton himself.  Very surprised JB or Mayer are absent but to be honest it's always been the folks I'm unfamiliar with that tweaks my interest.
I checked out a couple, Daniel Santiago and Tom Misch and like what I hear.  Santiago is a classic trained Jazz guitarist who's very good, very easy on the ears.
It's Misch though that I find extremely interesting.  Music is all over the place.  His debut album, Geography is a stunner and a new fave for my tastes.
