his friends and contemporaries can have fun and jam together for the benefit of a good cause. “The
Crossroads Festival is the realization of a dream for me, to gather a group of amazingly talented musicians
to perform on one stage,” said Clapton. “The Crossroads performers are all musicians I admire and
respect.” Royalties from the sale of this DVD will benefit Crossroads Centre, Antigua
