Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, Richard Thompson is also one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. He has received Lifetime Achievement Awards for Songwriting on both sides of the Atlantic – from the Americana Music Association in Nashville to Britain’s BBC Awards and the prestigious Ivor Novello. Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 60’s, Richard Thompson and his mates virtually invented British Folk Rock. By the age of 21 he left the band to pursue his own career, followed by a decade long musical partnership with his then-wife Linda, to over 30 years as a highly successful solo artist. A wide range of musicians have recorded Thompson’s music including Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, REM, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, David Byrne, Don Henley and many others. Thompson’s massive body of work includes over 40 albums, many Grammy nominations, as well as numerous soundtracks, including Werner Hertzog’s Grizzy Man. His most recent CD, Electric, was produced by the great Nashville musician Buddy Miller (Band of Joy, Patty Griffin.). Electric continues to receive positive praise with Rolling Stone declaring, ”the excellence is undeniable.’ VIP PACKAGE (Available only July 21, 2014 ‘ August 4, 2014) ‘ Includes one First Row Reserved seat ‘ Exclusive meet & greet with Richard Thompson ‘ Personal photograph with Richard Thompson ‘ One autographed lyric print ‘ One ‘Acoustic Classics’ CD (to be provided on the night of the show) + A digital download of ‘Acoustic Classics’ CD (zip file emailed to buyer) $175 CD / TICKET BUNDLE ‘ Includes one General Admission ticket ‘ One ‘Acoustic Classics’ CD (to be provided on the night of the show) + A digital download of ‘Acoustic Classics’ CD (Zip file emailed to buyer) $87.50 GENERAL ADMISSION ticket (On sale Friday – July 25, 2014) $75
