From his start in the British folk-rock band Fairport Convention in the late 1960s, Richard Thompson has kept up a music career spanning over 50 years. He recently released his 19th solo album, “13 Rivers,” which he wrote in his California home. With songwriting that’s earned him comparisons to Bob Dylan and guitar skills that draw parallels to Jimi Hendrix, Thompson is undoubtedly a master musician and storyteller.
Now 70 years old, he shows no signs of slowing down and takes the stage solo tonight to share music spanning his esteemed career. Folk singer Eliza Gilkyson opens the show.
