Ivor Novello Award-winning and GRAMMY Award-nominated legend Richard Thompson will perform with his Electric Trio at The Wilma on Sunday, February 10, 2019. Thompson last play in Missoula in 2015. See the photo gallery here.
2017 saw the legendary musician release his nineteenth solo album 13 Rivers. It was created at the Boulevard Recording Studio in Los Angeles where artists like Steely Dan and Fleetwood Mac also worked. It was Thompson’s first self-produced LP in over a decade.
Richard Thompson’s evocative songcraft, jaw-dropping guitar playing, and indefinable spirit, have earned him a spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association in Nashville, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BBC Awards. In 2011, Thompson garnered 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 Richard Thompson Electric Trio is comprised of Thompson, bass player Taras Prodaniuk and drummer Michael Jerome.
