I've seen Richard twice before and both times it was amazing. I've included a review. I couldn't have said it better (and I've spent the last forty-five minutes trying to!).
Richard Thompson is revered by his peers, the press and a tight group of intensely devoted fans. After that last caveat, you may think Thompson is some sort of underground sensation, but he's as above-ground as it gets--how many underground performers have sold more than 15 million albums? A consummate singer/songwriter/guitarist, Thompson began his musical career with Fairport Convention in the late '60s and hasn't looked back. He and his wife, Linda, recorded six albums together during the '70s and early '80s before they divorced in 1982. Thompson's voice is immediately recognizable, and stars from Elvis Costello to Bob Mould sing the praises of this incredible performer.
The Crowd
Folk-rock fans and connoisseurs of intelligent songwriting. (of course we are!)
I'll see you at the show!
