Richard Thompson--Solo Acoustic

Named by Rolling Stone as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, Richard Thompson is one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 60’s, Thompson and his mates virtually invented British folk rock. Since then, Thompson has spent over 30 years as a highly successful solo artist, creating over 40 albums and numerous soundtracks and earning many Grammy nominations and Lifetime Achievement Awards for Songwriting. As an in-demand live performer, the past two years saw Richard Thompson headlining dates around the world, co-headlining shows with Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, and participating in the Americanarama Tour with Bob Dylan, Wilco, and My Morning Jacket - which culminated with Dylan performing Thompson’s classic “1952 Vincent Black Lightning”.  

Richard Thompson’s genre-defying mastery of acoustic and electric guitar, along with his dizzying energy and onstage wit, continue to earn him massive new fans and a place as one of the most distinctive virtuosos in folk rock history.
