I discovered Richard Thompson via WHYY many years ago. I've introduced my husband to Mr Thompson's music and he has become a great fan along with me. What a fabulous guitar player! What a fabulous & unique voice which is still so very strong & powerful to this day! He is a joy to watch live.

I have seen Richard Thompson many times. The man simply never disappoints. His guitar playing leaves the audience breathless and he is masterful and expressive singing his amazing lyrics. The Center for the Arts is a great venue for music lovers with great acoustics and an audience that is all about the performance instead of bonehead conversations during the show. So glad I had the opportunity to see RT once again and look forward to the next one!

Really, really great show, hard to say what amazed me more the ferocity and complexity of his spot on figerstyle guitar playing or the unchanged excellence and quality of his vocals. I mean jimeny Cricket, his voice sounded as good, if not better than on studio recordings I've heard. His ability to still be able to deliver songs with that much raw emotion and power is to me nothing less than astounding. It was quite a memorable evening, I thank you Mr. Thompson.

About Richard Thompson

“The Finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix.” — LA Times “A folksinger who (shreds) like an arena-rock star… and still writes songs that sting and storm.” – NPR Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, Richard Thompson is also one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. He has received Lifetime Achievement Awards for Songwriting on both sides of the Atlantic- from the Americanas in Nashville to Britain’s BBC Awards, and the prestigious Ivor Novellos. In 2011 Thompson was the recipient of the OBE (Order of the British Empire) personally bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Most recently he was nominated for “Artist of the Year” by the Americana Music Honors & Awards. Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 60’s, Richard Thompson and his mates virtually invented British Folk Rock. By the age of 21 he left the band to pursue his own career, followed by a decade long musical partnership with his then-wife Linda, to over 30 years as a highly successful solo artist. A wide range of musicians have recorded Thompson’s music including Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, REM, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, David Byrne, Don Henley and many others. Thompson’s massive body of work includes over 40 albums, many Grammy nominations, as well as numerous soundtracks, including Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man. His most recent CD, Electric, was produced by the great Nashville musician Buddy Miller (Band of Joy, Patty Griffin.). Electric continues to receive positive praise with Rolling Stone declaring, “…the excellence is undeniable.” This year saw Richard Thompson headlining dates around the world as well as co-headlining shows with Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell. Thompson and his band joined the Americanarama Tour sharing the stage with Bob Dylan, Wilco, and My Morning Jacket culminating with Dylan himself covering RT’s classic song “’1952 Vincent Black Lightning”. Thompson’s genre defying mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar along with dizzying energy and onstage wit continue to earn Richard Thompson massive new fans and a place as one of the most distinctive virtuosos in folk rock history. “Genius appears early. Legends are earned. But history’s greatest never stand on their laurels. This is the artistic arc for Richard Thompson!” "Richard Thompson has been called the finest rock songwriter after Bob Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Jimi Hendrix." Scott Timberg, L.A. Times
