Richard Thompson at Landmark on Main Street

Richard Thompson

“THE FINEST ROCK SONGWRITER AFTER DYLAN AND THE BEST ELECTRIC GUITARIST SINCE HENDRIX.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES

With his newest release, 13 Rivers, Richard Thompson returns for a solo concert.

Powered by evocative songcraft, jaw-dropping guitar playing, and indefinable spirit, this venerable icon holds a coveted spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” with Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Americana Music Association & the BBC among his many accolades. He co-founded the trailblazing Fairport Convention, responsible for igniting a British Folk Rock movement. 2011 saw Thompson receive the OBE (Order of the British Empire) from Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Time touted his anthem, 1952 Vincent Black Lightning, on its “100 Greatest Songs Since 1923” list

The event is finished.
