Richard Thompson is one of this country's greatest songwriters and most distinctive guitar virtuosos, capable of breathtaking drama and sublime delicacy, prompting Rolling Stone to hail him as “a perennial dark-horse contender for the title of greatest living rock guitarist.” His songs have been covered by everyone from R.E.M to Elvis Costello.

 

‘Thompson put on a show of mercurial mood wings and consistent brilliance... a show of pure magic from start to finish.’  - The Times

 

‘Thompson is an extraordinary guitar player, probably the best this country has produced, an utterly sui generis talent whose style is rooted not in standard blues clichés but in the wealth of influences coursing through the British Isles.’

- The Independent
