The Felice Brothers

Wednesday 21st July, 2021

Richard Thompson

Powered by evocative songcraft, jaw-dropping guitar playing, and indefinable spirit, this venerable icon holds a coveted spot on 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. Moreover, Time touted his anthem, "1952 Vincent BlackLightning" on its "100 Greatest Songs Since 1923" list. Thompson was co-founder of the ground-breaking Fairport Convention, which virtually invented British folk rock in the 1960s, and his influence can't be overstated. Everybody from Robert Plant, Don Henley, and Elvis Costello to REM, Sleater-Kinney and David Byrne have covered his music. "The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix." - Los Angeles Times
