Follow the FACEBOOK EVENT for updates.
Named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the Top 20 guitarists of all time, Richard Thompson is also one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. Co-founding the ground-breaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 1960s, Richard and his mates virtually invented British folk rock. By the age of 21 he left Fairport to pursue a solo career. This tour film is a kaleidoscopic look at the hardworking and multifaceted musician through cascading visual and sonic experiences collected on the road with Richard and his band in 2015.
