Richard Thompson: 13 Rivers Tour

+ Joan Shelley & Nathan Salsburg

Richard Thompson enjoys wearing berets

Richard Thompson performs music from his latest record 13 Rivers alongside other favourites from his long and illustrious career.

Richard Thompson is one of this country's best loved 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.' Beginning his career as a co-founder of Fairport Convention back in the 1960s, Thompson has hardly stopped since, releasing over 40 albums and wowing audiences all over the world.

Support on the night comes from American Folk duo Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg.

This performance will begin promptly at the advertised start time and is expected to finish by 10.30pm – subject to change.
