Richard Thompson's Intimate Acoustic Winter Tour
Richard Thompson OBE is perhaps best known as a founding member of iconic British folk rock outfit Fairport Convention, but at 70 years old still continues to write and perform under his own steam. Described as a classic rock triple threat, Thompson's celebrated solo career has only blossomed thanks to his virtuosic guitar skills, strong and insightful lyrics and mellifluous vocal style. Don't miss the free-wheeling troubadour when he hits the road on an intimate acoustic tour in the winter of 2020.
The celebrated songwriter sets out armed with new material from his 2018 album 13 Rivers. After 50 years and almost 20 solo releases, Thompson proves he's still able to lend new perspectives to familiar sentiments, burrowing down into the depths of metaphor with his distinctive low drawl. Able to flit from soul-searching ballad to waxing lyrical about his extraordinary life an evening spent in the company of this consummate showman is one well spent.
