Crossroads Guitar Festival 2007 is due out on DVD
on November 20, 2007 – this is the must have
DVD this year from the acclaimed 2nd Crossroads
Guitar Festival was a day-long concert held in Chicago

A couple of treats
include Aaron Loesch, an up-and-coming bluesman
and dubbed Guitar Center’s King of the Blues
performs with Hubert Sumlin. Also, I’ve heard
Tal Wilkenfeld, the 22-year-old thunder from Down
Under stole the show with her bass playing as part
of Jeff Beck’s quartet.
