Rock legend Eric Clapton made a surprise visit to the stage during a local fundraiser this week.
The Grammy award-winning artist is no stranger to Columbus. Since marrying a local, Clapton has been spotted in and around central Ohio on several occasions. But this wasn’t just a celebrity sighting. Attendees to the Project Blues Review were treated to a four-song set by Clapton.
Project Blues Review is an annual showcase that raises funds for the Columbus Cancer Clinic.
