Eric Clapton and Vince Gill — Danny Clinch

You can tell there’s an easy rapport between Eric Clapton and Vince Gill when you watch this appealing live rendition of “Lay Down Sally.” Filmed at this year’s Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the classic tune gives both players a chance to shine. And when Gill slides in on high harmony, the satisfied smile on Clapton’s face is contagious.

Every three years, Clapton gathers his famous friends for an all-star guitar jam. This year’s edition will be released on CD, DVD and Blu-Ray on Tuesday (Nov. 19) with the straightforward title Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013. Proceeds benefit the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility Clapton founded in 1998 to help people suffering from chemical dependency.
