Richard Thompson (with Robert Ellis)
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 Alison Krauss to Robert Plant. This tour marks the release of his new album Electric, produced by Buddy Miller. It’s out on Monday 11 February 2013 on Proper. According to The Times ‘Thompson put on a show of mercurial mood wings and consistent brilliance… a show of pure magic from start to finish.’ He will be joined by Australian country singer Robert Ellis. Not to be missed.
