Here's a great opportunity for those interested in the music of ex Faiport Convention founder member, Richard Thompson, appearing at Warwick Arts Centre as part of his UK tour.

Richard Thompson is one of this country’s greatest songwriters and most distinctive of 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.” His songs have been covered by everyone from David Gilmour to R.E.M. via Elvis Costello. He returns to the UK to tour with a powerful electric band featuring Pete Zorn (guitars, flute, sax, mandolin), Michael Jerome (drums), Taras Prodaniuk (bass) and Joel Zifkin (violin, mandolin). It’s the same group that plays on the new album (Dream Attic) which was recorded in real time during an inspired three-months touring on the West Coast of America.

A concert not to be missed!!
