The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix
Described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “a perennial dark-horse contender for the title of greatest living rock guitarist,” Richard Thompson is one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. From his formidable beginnings with seminal London folk rockers Fairport Convention to his explosive latest release Electric, Thompson’s genre defying mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar continues to earn him a multitude of new fans, adding to a long list of admirers that already includes the likes of Michael Stipe, Elvis Costello and David Byrne. Playing as the Electric Trio, Thompson’s energy and sharp onstage wit further cement his reputation as one of the most distinctive and respected artists in folk rock history.
