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. 2011 saw Thompson garner an OBE (Order of the British Empire) personally bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Moreover, Time touted his anthem, “1952 Vincent Black Lightning,” on its “100 Greatest Songs Since 1923” list.

“The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix.” – Los Angeles Times

“Decades into his career, Richard Thompson remains a perennial critical favorite, favorite of other musicians, and cult hero; his guitar work (hybrid picking, bizarre tuning, and soloing that never feels too self-indulgent) is unparalleled and his songwriting taut, brainy, dry and dark.” – Pitchfork

“For a full half-century, Richard Thompson has been among the most blazing guitarists — someone who can command half a dozen styles and still sound like himself — and most resonant songwriters of whatever decade he’s working in.” – Los Angeles Review Of Books

“Matt Schofield is widely considered one of the best blues guitar players walking the planet…” – Kevin Klein, medium.com
