Powered by evocative songcraft, jaw-dropping guitar playing and indefinable spirit, Grammy-nominated Richard Thompson was named one of Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and counts a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association in Nashville, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BBC Awards, among his many accolades. He launched his career by co-founding trailblazing rock band Fairport Convention, responsible for igniting a British Folk Rock movement, and his influence since then cannot be overstated. Everybody from Robert Plant, Don Henley and Elvis Costello to R.E.M., Sleater-Kinney and David Byrne have covered his music, and he recently released his 19th studio album. “The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix.” – Los Angeles Times
