Part of Folk


Influential. Pioneering. A British folk rock cornerstone.

GRAMMY® Award-nominated legend Richard Thompson returns to The Glasshouse International Centre for Music in 2024.

He’s famed for turning emotions into the lightning-speed fretwork, poetic songwriting and impassioned picking that have filled nineteen solo albums to-date.

Thompson’s has had an illustrious career and it’s still going strong. He holds a coveted spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” He’s even picked up Lifetime Achievement Awards from the BBC and Americana Music Association in Nashville and was awarded an OBE in 2011.

Thompson’s influence can’t be overstated. Artists including Robert Plant, Don Henley, and Elvis Costello, REM, Sleater-Kinney and David Byrne have covered his music.

Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy jumped at the chance to produce 2015’s Still – which earned plaudits from Pitchfork, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, and more. Meanwhile, Werner Herzog tapped him for the soundtrack to Grizzly Man. He launched his career by co-founding trailblazing British folk rock outfit Fairport Convention.
